Social media comments of the exhibition:

Hi,
Ali, what a wonderful exhibition.  Congratulations!
It definitely makes you stop and think…take time to think about life, our world and the people around us.
Thankyou.
Julie

Ali, your show is exquisite.  Congratulations.  What I took away from last night was your commitment and integrity and your highly developed artistic ability.  You are inspiring.

Kim
We went to see Ali Griffin’s first solo exhibition ‘STILL’ at The Memo Gallery, Memorial Hall Healesville, on Friday night, lovely turn out of people to support her, and BEAUTIFUL works. Congratulations Ali!

Diana
It was very inspirational Ali, something to be very proud of.

Jen
It was very……. thought provoking.

Danuta
Managed to view today and loved the exhibition Ali. Congratulations! So many great elements. ‘Still Alive’. performed a treat …. a caterpillar presenting itself and dropping, neatly encased, upon the leaves to nibble.

Nicola
First of all…. congratulations on a truly stupendous exhibition!!!!!!!!!!! It looks/is fabulous. Each work came into its own in the gallery space and said what it was meant to say. Well done!! I was going to buy a dome, but got beaten :(.

Hailey
Awesome Ali you must be so proud and relieved!
The exhibition will resonate with a friend of mine from melbourne I will be sure to invite her up to see – and she has the income to buy something!!
Congratulations.  It takes a very bold and brave woman to move away from a style and medium to something new.
I particularly loved the skull drawings on paper….

Take Note

Take Note 2

Take note.
Made from paper, barbed wire and memories, ‘Take Note’ is a series of nest like sculptures using memories of objects that no longer exist.

As a response to the loss of the family home of Black Saturday, Ali manically wrote down memories attached to objects lost. This seemed like a good way to preserve those memories, as the objects that were lost can no longer be be the catalyst to ‘remember’.
