Statement of Work

Rashawn Griffin works in painting, sculpture, and installation. With materials ranging from fabric and tassels to paint and cookies, his practice uses poetic relationships between objects, architecture, and painting. He was born in Los Angeles, California and he received a MFA from Yale University in 2005. Griffin was a 2005-2006 resident of the Studio Museum in Harlem’s AIR program. Since then, his work has been exhibited widely, including the 2008 Whitney Biennial, a the two-person exhibition at the Studio Museum in Harlem (RSVP), as well as “Freeway Balconies” at the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin, Germany and “Minimal Baroque” at Rønnebæksholm in Næstved, Denmark, and the solo exhibition “A hole-in-the-wall country” at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in Overland Park, Kansas.
