4 Eyes 12 Months

Ken Griffen

The Royal @ RSOAA is proud to present 4 Eyes 12 Months, a solo exhibition of new work open from July 13th to the 31st.

Throughout his practice, Ken has consistently explored the various states of mind that consume or possess us at any given time.

In ‘4 Eyes 12 Months’, Ken draws on first-hand experiences from the past 12 months living and working in New York City. Through painting, drawing and sculpture he recreates observations of the environment around him.

The short movie script shown is one of these observations, noted on a mundane morning in Brooklyn.

Informed by an established commercial art background and several solo shows, Ken’s new paintings and works on paper use heavy blacks mixed with his more well-known style of inconsistent line work. The sculpture work is a translation of the same themes, using new materials for diversity in communication.

All works can be viewed as an expansion of a diary built over the past 12 months.
