Ali Griffin is a practising artist with a strong reputation for diverse, multi-dimensional artworks which have been showcased in public art installations, such as the McClelland Sculpture Gallery & Park, The Yering Sculpture Show, The Memo (Healesville) Foyer, and the Burrinja Biennale, and through solo and group exhibitions. She has been commissioned to make public sculpture by Local Councils, the Lions Club of Victoria, and the Toolangi Sculpture Trail, and has delivered several other design/art based interpretations and signage projects.
Ali is interested in creating work that has meaning and connection to the viewer. She believes art can touch people deeper than they know, and delights in the challenge of making this happen. Ali explores progressive responses within her art through the use of multiple mediums, up-cycled objects, sustainable practices and site specific considerations which combine to enhance the final piece.
Her 20+ years background in Advertising and Design in senior creative roles gives her the experience to creatively and appropriately respond to an art or design brief and deliver multi-faceted public communications through her artwork.
Ali’s ability to engage, understand and interpret information across a range of stakeholders make her a collaborative contributor aware of the requirements of project delivery within the public arts space.
She brings to any brief her unique ability to speak directly to cultural significance through accessible narratives, essential for public art installations and community precinct activations.
Connection to memory and the values of seemingly invaluable objects are concepts which inform Ali’s work. She is interested in the idea of accumulating and collecting, and how we define the sentimental, monetary and intrinsic value of things.
