A local artist who incorporates nuts, nails and screws to explore neuroscience, physics and psychology is displaying her ground-breaking work at Barking station’s pop up gallery this month.

Griffi, who lives locally, said: “I use an array of reclaimed materials such as screws, nails, kitchen utensils and other building paraphernalia, some of which have been donated from local people and building sites.

“I try to explore forms of science in my art to pose more subliminal questions about our society and culture.”

Karen West Whylie, CEO of Barking Enterprise Centre, which operates the gallery, said: “We want to continue to showcase the best of the creative talent in our borough and Griffi was a natural choice.” 

David Harley, Head of Regeneration at Be First, which secured the space at the station, said: “Griffi’s work is edgy and in my view outstanding. It’s a great new addition  to the gallery which is generating a buzz in Barking.”

The gallery will be open from 10am – 4pm Tuesday to Friday. The exhibition closes on 29 November.
