The Harvest - A Collection of Pen & Ink Drawings by Carne Griffiths

Carne was born in Liverpool and spent much of his childhood drawing. He studied Illustration at Maidstone college of Art in 1992 and after graduating with a 1st class BA Hons in 1995 was made a fellow of the college along with colleague Dan Baldwin. Together they curated the Shynola exhibition at Islington's Candid Arts Gallery in 1996.

Carne's early influences include the animated work of the Brothers Quay, the drawings of Andre Masson, Paul Klee and Leondardo Da Vinci as well as the influence of outsider artists such as Adolf Wolfli, Scottie Wilson, Henry Darger and the drawings of Antonin Artaud.

A move to East London in 1997 saw a change in direction as Carne undertook an apprenticeship as a gold wire embroidery designer with M. Hand & Company under the guidance of draughtsman Ken Miles. A two year apprenticeship led to a 12 year career, becoming Creative Director and producing elaborate hand drawn embroidery designs for a range of prestigious clients including HRH the Prince of Wales, The Sultan of Oman, Ralph Lauren, Tom Ford, Asprey, Chanel, Burberry and many of London's Savile Row tailors, as well as producing designs for films The Last King of Scotland, Valkyrie, The Phantom of the Opera and costume embroidery design for the musical Wicked.

In January 2009 Carne produced a collection of automatic drawings for his first solo show entitled 'The Seer' in Leytonstone's 491 Gallery. The drawings, based upon the automatic process, revisited his former influences and were a departure from the formality of embroidery design. This exhibition re-ignited Carne's passion for art and led to the creation of the 100sqft project in November of 2009 bringing together artists from all backgrounds to show their work alongside established professionals.

The Harvest

In his first collection of drawings since his departure from the embroidery world, Carne is gathering together the influences from his previous work and developing his unique style of drawing. The Harvest references paintings and drawings by artists such as Da Vinci, Ribera and Verrochio, and explore the freedom of the drawn line. A planned lightbox installation will reveal the reverse of these drawings and continue themes of secrecy and obsession threaded throughout his work
