Ro2 Art Gallery presents TJ Griffin: "Connection" opening reception
Ro2 Art will present "Connection" by TJ Griffin, the artist's third solo exhibition with the gallery, featuring new works in various media, continuing narratives introduced in his recently published illustrated poetry edition, "Existence." The current work is influenced by Expressionism, Illustration, and contemporary figure painting.
Emotions run deep through the eyes and expressions of his figures. With a striped nose symbolizing the metaphorical mask we wear in our everyday lives, the figures become portraits of our emotional state of mind. The colors are electric, painted with a loose brush and rendered with simplicity. His work has a push and pull of depth, with patterns moving in and out of figures into backgrounds. Through a combination of media including video painting presented on a massive 138-inch led video display, courtesy of Go-Vision, TJ Griffin creates an immersive environment to boldly open the curtains to a wild, yet welcoming world.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through February 10.
