springintosummer asked: When did you know you wanted to express yourself through art?

I think I’ve always had a need to do something with my hands, and art has always allowed me to satisfy that need, ever since I can remember.

When I was in elementary, middle, and high school it was always my favorite subject and my parents only encouraged it, even at the young age of 6. I was never sure that I would pursue art academically. It wasn’t until after my first year of college that I realized creating and learning about art was something I had to do, because I couldn’t bear not to. 


So I gave my first official artist talk this past Friday at Austin City Hall, as apart of the Peoples Gallery programing, Art After Six, and it was such a great experience!!! On top of being a great opportunity I was able to learn about three other great artists: Michael Anthony Garcia, Carla Goodman, and Hector Hernandez. 

I started the presentation with this image, which is three things I’ve kept close over the past few years. To see images of my work check out jadeabner.com.

Join us for our first solo exhibition: 
“Falling Apart and Into Place”
 
Nick Griffin
Opening: Friday, March 2nd, 7-9 PM  
Find FORUS on Facebook

Nick Griffin operates within the framework of painting, making marks on a surface. His work, however much related to painting, is entirely sculptural. Each of the works presented in this show develop on the idea that a work is not necessarily made as much as it is found or discovered in some varying state of dissolution. Griffin&#8217;s work explores the liminal ground where creation meets evolution. His studio is full of found furniture that has been wasted, abused, and ignored. It is from this collection that Nick harvests his painterly marks. He uses residential artifacts, which in combination and composition, become raw color that reflect both an age and experience that transcend the hands of the maker. These entropic designs are constantly subject to revision as they become abstracted self-referential objects. His work explores the beautiful in the ruinous actions of chaos shown here through the ignored motions of mediocrity. 
Donnie and I are so excited to be putting on our second show in our apartment (gallery)! If you are in town please come out to our first solo exhibition of Nick Griffin and enjoy a cold beer with us! &lt;3
