Modern Classics: Oil on Canvas Paintings by Mitch Griffiths

Published May 19, 2022

Contemporary artist Mitch Griffiths echoes the work of the old masters with his richly detailed oil paintings.

“Inspired by the canon of representational painting and its enduring duty to hold a mirror to the civilisations which act as patron, Griffiths has adapted an old medium to the scrutiny of a new world.

With an initial approach which is surprisingly loose, Griffiths works in a direct and open-form style of application; rapidly manipulating generalised and abstracted masses and refining until specific details emerge. The viewer is not left with the cold scrutiny of hyper-realism, but instead a complex and painterly reality of the artists own creation.”

“The purpose of any kind of art… is to provoke emotion. What you’re trying to get is a connection with the viewer.”
