David Griggs: Horror Business - Art Collector

David is a scavenger. Analytical research and development doesn’t play any part in his practice, but he rakes through some of my favourite visual garbage dumps: discarded religious paraphernalia, psycho-animistic detritus, and the refuse of popular culture. Sometimes it feels that he can’t get the paint down fast enough to keep up with his fertile visual harvest. I’m intrigued by the fact that although seemingly dark his paintings can still make me smile. The ‘David Griggs juggernaut’ can be a rough and ready ride but worth spending a penny for its rich rewards that keep giving.
