Gareth Griffith

Elected a member of the RCA in 2016

Gareth studied at Liverpool College of Art and lived in Liverpool and Jamaica. Since 1972 he has lived, worked and taught in North Wales, living in Mynydd Llandegai. He says of his practice "I have no set working practise, everything I do is a direct, or indirect as the case may be, response to things seen found and felt. If there is a goal it is to make an image that has a personal resonance. It is important that it has a presence, but for others to decode a meaning. My method of working is varied, I have always used found objects, if they lie around the studio for long enough they sometimes get under your skin, invention through recognition absorbs me".
