Patricia 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 31 years as a professional artist painting, teaching, and traveling. Her work has brought her International recognition and has been shown in 14 museums. Patricia donates 10% of the proceeds from her work to conservation.
“I am devoted to creating images with the intent of stirring stewardship. 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.”
