Walking into Ali Griffin's studio last week, I was gobsmacked!
You can really tell when an artist has tapped into their authentic creative juice. Chaos reigns, every surface is covered by a million new discoveries and the possibilities in each crevice in the room is completely unlimited. That's what I was witnessing as I walked.
I wasn't gobsmacked by this in itself, I'm quite accustomed and delighted by a seriously messy studio space, what I was taken aback by , was that this particular artist, who's work I had seen grow and change over the years, had transitioned beyond her identity as designer and conceptualist and into full flight as "immersive art-maker".
We got juicy with words last week, have a listen for some serious inspiration as we talk about art- making, recovery from PTSD and Ali's latest show "STILL" which opens at the Healesville Memo hall on July the 3rd 2015..
Listen along to the Ali Griffin interview here.
