Book Now Available - peter griffen in and out of abstraction
In this book....
"I wish to accompany many of my images with a comment, perhaps an explanation, or simply thoughts that come to me in a random way....I will open the gates a little more for the viewer to see better and understand (my work and abstraction) somewhat more clearly...."Foreword by Stephen Wilson, Master of Fine Arts, University of NSW.
