Tonette Griffin

"Lush, gorgeous, rich, seductive large scale color photographs of the artist portray her image of self.  What is so interesting about this work is that while she has stopped time in this fleeting moment of the photograph, her life vibrates and runs throughout the image, belying the medium itself.  In one image,  her blood pulses through a cut lip, and in another her body turns in an ephemeral objection to the moment of the photo, reminding the viewer of the insistence of life and time over image."
