Chihiharu Shiota - Installation Artist
Chiharu Shiota is an amazing artist, using threads and yarns to create these webs that are attached to objects which are caught in these webs. Shiota is influences by fairy tales, old hospitals, dark dreams and memories. Sometimes she believes that reality is her dream and that her dreams are her reality. The Suitcases in one of the above images represents identity and memories of people. These installations are stunningly beautiful but with an edge to give you shivers. The thought and depth to these pieces represents nightmares, and it is so dark that it can give you nightmares.
Artist & Illustrator:
Carne Griffiths’ artwork is born from a love of drawing and the journey of creating an image on the page. Working primarily with calligraphy ink, graphite and liquids, such as tea brandy, vodka and whisky he draws and then manipulates the drawn line.
Carne’s images explore both human and floral forms, figuratively and in an abstract sense. He is fascinated by the flow of line and the ‘invisible lines’ that connect us to the natural world. These may be considered lines of energy or spiritual connections between ourselves and our surroundings and his work is often an emotional response to images and situations encountered in daily life.
