About

Deborah Griffin

I consider myself an artist and a storyteller, and attempt to combine the two into a visual narrative. I incorporate one of the oldest artist materials (encaustic) with some of the most recent (digital collage). The evocative surface texture combined with the vintage ephemera and my own photography of farm life and country landscape creates an image-story that hopefully resonates with those places of soul and history in everyone. In addition, I use ephemera from the past and photographic elements both vintage and specifically taken for a project; I repurpose and reposition the people, places and things to tell a new story, to fashion a new narrative that explores archetypal characters and ideas utilizing a digital workflow.

Using ephemera from the past and photographic elements both vintage and taken especially for the project; she repurposes and repositions the people, places and things to tell a new story, to fashion a new narrative that explores archetypal characters and ideas utilizing a digital workflow. Deborah states, “I prefer to create an arranged and developed space, an environment layered with images, symbols, and meaning. I create worlds that are practically bursting at the seams with content. They are intended to lure the viewer into succumbing to this place, to realize there is always more to explore, or mysteries that will be revealed if you spend some time in the story.”

    Just enjoyed your work at the Firehouse Gallery in Pleasanton, CA. Wish you had a calendar of some of the pieces. I could look at them again and again and find something new. Is it true you have a griffin image somewhere in each piece?
