Tammy Griffin: Intimate Circuits

March 7, 2006

South-African artist Tammy Griffin combine oil paintings and mixed media with programmed and animated LEDs. From the artist:

My paintings are abstract versions of realistic portraits private associations self-invented marks words and maps of energy. For this exhibition I added moving light to my palette to animate the works – oils mixed media and electronics on canvas. I scratched pierced sculpted painted hammered soldered cut poured touched and calculated. I have used 500 LEDs 1500 meters of wire as well as 20 microprocessors to drive the lights. The result is full of texture movement music and rhythm. In the end meditative and restful.
