Artist’s Statement - Will Griffin
Will Griffin moves through diverse spaces, searching for materials and listening for rhythms that resonate.Triggering lines of investigation, Will’s process thus becomes a combinational process, creating compositions. Urban spaces are seen as an arena through which to trace the movements of people. It is only by using natural forms that Will can confront perceived connections/interactions between unique forms. In short, his practice is one in which he rejects the idea of autonomous objects in any capacity.
As a result, Wills's practice can be seen to intertwine found elements. Brought together, they push and pull amongst each other, creating a dynamic that develops into a dialogue. Forging a veritable tete-a-tete, experimentation that underpins the basis of Will’s practice.
His current research brings a western perspective to the material-based disciplines of Japanese ‘Wabi Sabi’, ‘Suiseki’ and the contemporary writings upon the Sublime.
Will works in sculpture, painting, sound, and kinetic movement. Materials are sourced from the immediate environment:Flintstone, bronze, fabric, sheet steel, cardboard,and wood.
