Carne Griffiths’ artwork is born from a love of drawing and the journey of creating an image on the page. Working primarily with calligraphy ink, graphite and liquids, such as tea brandy, vodka and whisky he draws and then manipulates the drawn line. After graduating from Maidstone College of Art Carne served an apprenticeship and worked as a designer and later as a creative director at the longest-established gold wire embroidery firm in the world. His designs were used for the uniforms in the films 'Valkyrie', 'The Last King of Scotland' and in particular his "red death coat" was used in The Phantom of the Opera'.
Carne’s images explore both human and floral forms, figuratively and in an abstract sense. He is fascinated by the flow of line and the ‘invisible lines’ that connect us to the natural world. These may be considered lines of energy or spiritual connections between ourselves and our surroundings; his work is often an emotional response to images and situations encountered in daily life. These daily images are recorded in a dreamlike sense onto the page where physical boundaries are no longer important.
Carne’s work takes us on a journey of escapism, often focusing on scenes of awe and wonderment, they offer a sense of abandonment to the artist and to the viewer an invitation to share and explore this inner realm.
