Flag Bearer’s Daughter, Rehabilitation and The Muse is Dead will form part of the group of twenty-five exciting new paintings on show by Mitch Griffiths, all dealing with his anxieties about modern life in a symbolic and illustrative way.
His detailed, figurative paintings are bluntly honest with a skill and complexity common in paintings of the Old Masters. His captivating and expressive portraits have been widely recognised through art prizes including the BP Portrait Award. Mitch’s remarkable talent has attracted an international following with celebrity portrait commission, sell-out shows and eager anticipation from collectors to see his new work.
Paul Green, President of Halcyon Gallery, says: “Mitch’s long-awaited show this Spring is an important punctuation in his career and builds up to the Iconistasis exhibition in 2012 of world icons, which will include portraits of Ray Winstone and Keira Knightley, and which has the potential to be a blockbuster international show.”
