Brushes have always seemed too treasured to me. I use them sparingly. Instead, I find knives and drywall tools to make my art. While I work my brain is in a constant shift from gesture to composition, a kind of taming of the instincts. I also allow for accidents, believing they are a gateway to the subconscious. What comes out repeatedly is a kind of landscape - an expression of another territory located somewhere beneath my consciousness.
York Griffith was born outside of Detroit Michigan. His paintings have been shown in galleries from Brooklyn, New York to Livingston, Montana and are part of private collections in Detroit, Los Angeles, and New York City. He now paints and lives in New England.
