Abstract Collage 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.
