PJ Riley

I live in Grenada where the sky meets the sea, tucked away along a lagoon, across a peninsula with a perfect curve. The majestic banyan tree in my backyard was my first artistic inspiration. Working primarily with acrylics, spray paints, and image editing software, I express the richness and diversity of the natural kingdom, while at the same time revealing its fragility and ever-changing flow. The trees I depict are microcosms enshrining ecosystems of flora and fauna. Teeming with life, they are inhabited by a myriad of creatures and spirit animals: ear-batted foxes, dogs, cats, crabs, owls, whose eyes peer through the foliage and trunk, curiously or at times minaciously. My art is influenced by the animistic belief that plants, objects, and natural phenomena possess a distinct spiritual essence. I define my style as “Natural Constructivism” in deference to the greater building blocks of creation, the structures underlying the formation of animals and plants. In my work, I strive for perfect symmetry, as a way to reverse the chaos that is inherently present in the world. My paintings are postcards, messages of hope, with occasional ridiculous touches to remind us not to take life too seriously.
