The Constructions and paintings explore the connections between place and time and questions social issues. The places include Liverpool, where he studied in the 1960s; Jamaica, where he lived with his young family in the early 1970s; and Mynydd Llandegai above the Ogwen Valley where he has lived and worked for more than 40 years. In his eightieth year this influential artist presents work that references experiences from across his lifetime and reflects on the manufacturing processes used by factory workers in the valley and how the artist uses the same materials and processes in different ways.

“I look for connections between the constructions I make, and paint them. There is a symbiosis between the two.” Gareth Griffith
