Remnants 3 by Huw Griffith
Collage on board; 1940s Spanish film posters and 19th Century French papers. Griffith depicts the passage of time by layering his materials – fragile ephemera marked by age. His work has echoes of archival art and Mimmo Rotella; rare documents, advertisements and cinema posters are taken apart, original images are hidden and context is lost. The emerging image is built out of the remnants, creating a bold, unconventional aesthetic from vestiges of the past. Griffith describes his technique as the art of painting with paper, a practice he feels has been largely overlooked.

Abstract Collage by Huw Griffith
Set in an old painted frame, an abstract collage.
The antique papers laid down to exhibit subtle colours, shapes and formations.
The Fieldwork series of collages was inspired by early ariel photography.
The collage has been placed into an antique frame which has been reworked by Huw and is part of the overall artwork.
Abstract Forms and Colours by Huw Griffith
A fine collage featuring beautiful antique papers.
The abstract forms and colours quiety allow the viewer to create their own perceptions. This is a peaceable work, neither reaching out for attention or carrying any particular message. Huw Griffith's work is often a spontaneous process. A meditation, certainly.
These pieces are often created on automatic. When ones mind is relaxed and without fear or boundary, the best work can often be created.
