READ  Fertile Country by Henry Curchod


Edison is pleased to present the debut solo exhibition, Fertile Country by Australian First Nations painter Simone Griffin. 

Griffin’s work investigates the relationship between elemental processes and the human psyche. Building connections through her unique visual language, she sources inspiration from diagrams, maps, personal memories, Indigenous and Western science and philosophies. Griffin inherently portrays our relationship to the natural world and its cyclical affects. Her intuitive approach to painting reflects a desire to blend worlds, both practically and conceptually. Utilising an industrialised tool, the airbrush, to apply dot work, Griffin affirms a confluence between Western Formalism and traditional Indigenous Australian painting.


Simone Griffin (b.1989) Murgon, Queensland is a descendant of the Koa, Wangan Jagalingou and Wakka Wakka peoples, the traditional custodians of South East Queensland, Australia.

Griffin exhibited at the Aotearoa Art Fair, New Zealand and was a finalist in the Wynne Prize, AGNSW (2023), she was an Indigenous Emerging Finalist in the Ravenswood Australian Women’s Art Prize (2021). Griffin completed a Bachelor in Fine Art with Honours at the National Art School, Sydney, on Gadigal land. Griffin currently lives and works in London, UK.
