Paint is Thicker than Water " An Artistic Family Display


PRESS RELEASE :
Artistic Family Display Their Work To The Public

It is seldom that both parents and their offspring are artistically talented but such names as Bach, Tischbein or Baldwin tend to spring to mind as exceptions to the rule. That's why when one has the opportunity to view the work of a whole family of artists in a single exhibition it should be an event that is deeply etched into ones calendar. The Griffiths will be displaying their joint work at their appropriately named "Paint is Thicker than Water" show on Friday the 13th January 2012 at the Pump House Center for the Arts, Chillicothe OH.

Abril Andrade Griffith is a full time painter and has a style which is bursting with vibrant color projecting wonderful imagery through her figurative interpretation. Smooth rounded soft textures that draw the eye to desired focal points always relax despite the somewhat evocative material sometimes being portrayed. That being said, the innocent pastel shades shouldn't mislead you as they are the honey in the fly trap. Her work playfully dances between the sweetly angelic and the gothically macabre yet has the ability to hold the viewer captive with its powerful enchanting magic. Abril's work is bold but somehow remains accessible to a wide audience as it jumps with both feet into new undiscovered frontiers.

Her husband Matt Griffith is a world renowned tattoo artist who has appeared on the cover of numerous well-known tattoo magazines due to the excellent quality of his work. Pinpointing his work genre-wise isn't an easy task as he can pretty much move from one style to another with relative ease due to the nature of his career demands as a professional tattoo artist. His work is outstanding and is definitely on par with the best. The work is precise and multi-faceted ranging from comic caricature to abstract imagery although the transition is seamless.      I was in total awe while glancing through his portfolio as each new piece seemed to outdo the work I had just seen; totally breathtaking stuff and definitely a "must see" experience.

Abril and Matt are the joint owners of the "2 Dollar Pistol Tattoo" shop where they bring the dreams of their clients into reality through the mighty talents they possess. Rarely does an opportunity arise to see such skilled work outside the confines of printed publication or conventions so I highly suggest attending the show.

As mentioned above, the Griffiths three year old daughter Lucy will also be flaunting her talent to make it a complete family event. Her work is heavily influenced by Matt and Abril's creative input and already shows signs of a budding future talent of extraordinary proportions. The Griffiths look forward to seeing you and I am sure that you will equally enjoy seeing what they have on offer to the public.


Display will be available for viewing January 13 - 30, 2012
