Trelar / Trailer

21/09/2019 – 03/11/2019
Gareth Griffith

Trailer was an exhibition of new work by artist Gareth Griffith, based in North Wales. The constructions and paintings displayed explore the connections between place and time and question 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 presented work that references experiences from across his lifetime and reflected on the manufacturing processes used by factory workers in the Ogwen 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

The exhibition toured from Aberystwyth Arts Centre and continued on to Oriel Davies, Newtown, who curated the tour with support from Arts Council Wales
