Patricia A Griffin’s vibrant compositions are a contemporary manifestation of humanity’s earliest muse. Her oil paintings of animals on linen, burn slowly as they stir the mind into daydreams of travel and encounters with exotic and indigenous beings. Griffin goes to great lengths to study, photograph and sketch her kinetic subjects. She utilizes subject matter as a testing ground for concepts of color, value, and structure. The works are portals into poetic and psychological content and drift into wordless fantasy.
Griffin spent the past 28 years as a professional artist painting, teaching, and traveling. Her work has brought her International recognition and shown in 13 museums. Patricia’s images can be found in collections from Dallas to Dubai. She has exhibited in 16 Solo Exhibitions, and over 160 Group Exhibitions.
Born in Philadelphia Pa. in 1967. Her studio, garden center, historic guest house, and homestead are located in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.
I recognize my existence as universal and connected to the farthest reaches of conception.
I have devoted my past to creating images with the intent of stirring stewardship within.
My goal is to captivate the viewer in a joyful moment of presence.
The time I spend in the habitat of my subjects is critical.
It is here that our existence is shared.
I draw from these experiences.
Layers of paint are applied in veils to linen.
The energy of oil color moves the eye and Animals exist in the vibration of pigment.
