William Griffiths
My art straddles two worlds : photography and painting. My inspiration, consciously or sub consciously, comes from the environment, and the allure found within. I am intrigued by the beauty in the natural world (landscapes, trees,rocks) as well as the beauty in man's manufactured masses (metal, deteriorating structures, forgotten dwellings). I photograph overlooked objects and use it as inspiration for abstract works. I strive to recreate the moment, and express what I am seeing. I use unorthodox materials, and experiment with different mediums to emulate the surfaces I see. By merging abstract and representational methods I work to create mood and beauty through transformation, similar to nature's regeneration and structural decay.
