About

Melora Griffis’ “extra (wing triptych)” is a 12 x 12 inch mixed media work in mixed fabric, acrylic, glitter and thread mounted on wood panel. Against a painted metallic turquoise background, a winged figure stitched in separate pieces of scraps of fabric seems to retreat from the viewer, clothed in hot pink scrap, a fluorescent green halo sewn so that it nestles between the wings. Black stitching in the lower right corner spells out “extra.” The sewn elements create a sculptural feeling in this work. Visible stitching heightens a sense of delicacy in this multifaceted work. Griffis’ works are always personal, while delving into universal themes of memory, life, emotional states, searching for truth. As she says, “I use symbology, metaphor, color, and form, to suggest a psychological location.” In his ARTnews review of Griffis' solo exhibition at 571 Projects NYC (2012), critic Doug McClemont called Griffis’ work “poignant” and “dramatic.” A native New Yorker, Griffis received her MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts (Montpelier, VT) and her BFA from The Rhode Island School of Design. She has had solo exhibitions at the Pamela Williams Gallery (Amagansett, NY), Lizan Tops Gallery and AE Gallery (both East Hampton, NY), Whitney Art Works (Greenport, NY), The Boylan Gallery (Rhinebeck, NY), Blue Heron Arts Center (New York, NY) and 571 Projects (New York, NY). Her work has been included in group shows at Edward Thorp Gallery (New York, NY), White Columns (New York, NY), Bowman/Bloom Gallery (New York, NY), Michael Steinberg (New York, NY), Silas Marder (Bridgehampton, NY), Ille Arts, (Amagansett, NY), Sara Nightingale Gallery, (Sag Harbor, NY) and Boltax Gallery (Shelter Island, NY) among others. Griffis has received fellowships from Oberpfälzer Künstlerhaus (Schwandorf, Germany), the Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts, (Ithaca, NY), Schloss Pluschow (Mecklenberg-Vorpommern, Germany), The Edward F. Albee Foundation (Montauk, NY) and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (Amherst, VA).
