Abbie Griffiths

A vibrant/textural sculpture currently on display in Main Outpateints.

Colour is the key to my sculptures – From the beginning the process of combining yarns of wool to other objects struck me as a new way of working, the process lead me from wrapping everyday objects to those which were more interesting and unusual, such as gymnastic hula hoops, foam cups and wooden sticks.

“Though I work with vibrant colours in wool and spray paints, I try and keep the sculptures to simple forms as the colour becomes the main component. I like to work with multiples of the same object which for me makes the intensity of my work more interesting and eye catching. Whilst making my work I always try to create the “wow” factor, something which is a visual pleasure for me as well as my audience.”
