About Our Auction

Welcome to the 8th Every Thursday Art Auction in support of the Ottawa Food Bank. Congratulations to Jane Gibson, last week's winner. $910 was raised for a running total of $57, 345 .

The last trip I took with my daughter before the Pandemic hit was to Holbox Island, Mexico in early 2020. 'Pelicanos Holbox' is a sketch from that magical time.

About Christopher Griffin Art Studio

I have come across patches on sidewalks that express everything I strive for in my work. Colour, texture, pattern, line quality. They also contain a quality of randomness, freeness and freshness. These are visually complete moments. My challenge is to capture this mixture of time and weathering in my own work.

By giving the initial markings to chance – either a child’s scribbling or a surface of a city sidewalk, I leave myself the task of completing the picture.

The preciousness of a blank canvas is removed from the equation and I am allowed to create an image to my own ideals. Playing and being in the moment are important components of my work.
