“My goal is to contribute as much creative energy into this world as I possibly can…to continue to be inspired by life and hopefully to inspire. My job is to show up, stay open to the moment and to my heart…I LOVE what I do and I am grateful to have the opportunity to express myself as an artist! “Life IS Art. Nothing in this universe is static. As an artist my goal is to represent life as I am experiencing it..exploring a fraction of the infinite ways to express visually with an immense curiosity. ” -Bridget GriggsFull Bio Tweet
About Bridget Griggs
Bridget Griggs (1968) was born in Canada, where she began her creative journey. Her canvases express the wealth of her collective experiences, the tirelessness of her inquisitive nature, her thirst for the undefined and acceptance of the ever-changing. Exploration of emotion and the constantly-shifting universal fiber are fundamental values of her expression.
Following in the practice of autonomy and gestural brushwork of the great Abstract Expressionist legacy, Bridget simultaneously identifies with artistic rhetoric of Gerard Richter, Georgia O’Keeffe and Pablo Picasso in her acceptance of the present moment and her strive to contextualize and redefine constructs of reality. Her canvases, utterly imbued with essence of the artist, achieve staggering sense of movement and express colorful emotional depths as they capture and suspend their audience in the realm of their painted realities.
The innate, explorative truth expressed by the visual dialogue of Griggs’ paintings has attracted a vast private collector, gallery and corporate clientele and, is sought out by the international creative and design communities. Recognized for her artistic virtuosity, Bridget’s works could be seen in numerous public spaces across Toronto, such as the Odgers Berndtson at the Royal Bank Plaza, Totum Fitness Life Science, offices of the TD Financial Group and the local Ideal Cafe, to name a few.
