PATRICIA A. GRIFFIN

Biography

Griffin’s portraits of animals are thrilling and evocative and explore the subjects of humanity’s earliest artists. They are the contemporary manifestation of a long tradition in paintings . She utilizes subject matter as a testing ground for concepts of color, organization and structure. The animals give her an endless opportunity for reflection growth and expression.

Patricia A Griffin was born in Philadelphia Pa. in 1967. She is a graduate of Moore College of Art and Design, BFA 1989. Griffin has spent the past 26 years painting, teaching, and traversing the States from East to West. Her studio and home are located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.

Griffin’s palette is responsible in large part for the power of her work. An intense involvement with bold colors and light dominate her paintings. The paintings are often grand in scale, with a dynamic vibration creating and optical flicker. These elements transpose the expected to the extraordinary.

Griffin’s work has brought her International recognition and has shown in Eleven Museums. Her award winning images can be found in collections from Dallas to Dubai. She has exhibited in Ten Solo Exhibitions, and over 115 Group Exhibitions, Six in NYC.

Griffin is represented by Carspecken Scott, Wilmington, DE, RARE Gallery, Jackson WY, Goldenstein Gallery, Sedona, AZ, Going To The Sun Gallery, White Fish, MT, Tompkins Fine Art, Billings, MT.
