Belinda Griffiths is a visual artist whose practice explores
a hybrid of traditional themes through modern day technologies. An artist who has a love for water,
clouds and natural phenomena, who infuses the
organic complexity of nature with digital technology.

She works across a broad range of media including painting, digital art, photography and sculpture. She studied digital illustration and graphic design, successfully working in the film industry for some 8 years and has extended those disciplines into her practice. 

Belinda's current body of work, 'sea of clouds' is exploring the face of the ocean, etched by the wind. 
These wall pieces, held within the traditional setting of the frame merging classical motifs with modern
day digital movie driven water effects. The ocean floats, stopped in a moment of time. Beneath the
resin sculptures, the painting becomes diffracted and refracted encouraging viewers 
to closely examine and move around these pieces, prompting individual experiences.

Accompanying these sculptures is the oil painting, Fade into you, which captures the moment of
metamorphosis where liquids dissolve into atmosphere. 

A full-time practicing artist at Bayview Studios, Shelly Bay. Her works are held in private
collections in New Zealand, Australia, France and the USA.
