Darkness Into Light is an exhibition of multi-layered, textured artworks by Artist Michèle Griffiths.
This exhibition runs from 23 June to 8 August. Free entry.
The collection explores the possibility of hope in dark times: the triumph of light over darkness. The pieces, which Griffiths calls “Wall Fragments”, are in plaster and are highly textured with marks scored into the surface to replicate the aged graffiti that can be seen in the ancient walls of the Cathedral.
Some are playful, or random, like the doodles of bored pilgrims; others record the presence of individuals who, like ordinary people the world over, from time immemorial, consciously want to record their presence in a particular place.
Following a career as a French and German Language Teacher, Michèle Griffiths began her creative education at the Putney School of Art, and shortly after enrolled at the Wimbledon School of Art (1992-95), training under Michael Ginsborg and the eminent painter Prunella Clough.
Griffiths has exhibited as part of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Discerning Eye at the Mall Galleries and as part of the Florence Biennale (2019). Commercially she has recently completed a major commission for P&O’s flagship cruise liner, Britannia, and sells to a number of collectors world-wide.
Chichester Cathedral is open Monday – Saturday (10.00am – 4.00pm) and Sunday (12.00 – 2.00pm). For further information, please visit: chichestercathedral.org.uk
