Cary Griffith's Rhythm Paintings

Music has a profound influence on the way I approach my art.  I paint to the sound of jazz music playing, depending on the mood I am feeling.  I try to wed that rhythm, melody, and lyricism to emotional movement within the form, color, and content of my work.  What results, for me is the imagery of pure emotional expression.  In the abstract images of my art, I attempt to converge visions of color and movement to create unexpected configurations of line and form, which will bring to the viewer an expressive interpretation informed by his or her own experience.

In each of my works there is a complexity inherent in the manner in which everything comes together, creating what I hope is an extra-ordinary synchronicity that speaks of a depth of meaning and purpose.  For me, it is this lyrical and representational aspect of painting that ultimately conveys the reality of the emotional force from which it springs.  My vision is to create the freedom, sadness, joy, fury, forgiveness, betrayal, love, and peace that comes from finding that relationship with abstract painting. 

The artist's work was featured at Charley Hafen Jewelers • Gallery from Friday, June 19, 2015 through Saturday, July 11, 2015.
