In the world of journalism, “yesterday’s news” is often regarded as worthless and unimportant. That is, if the story is not reported immediately, the opportunity is missed and the “story” will be casually tossed, forgotten, and will not see the light of day. In the world of art, on the other hand, the “processing” of information and the germination of ideas can take a long time, sometimes even entire generations.

Joshua Griffit's current series of works offers an unusual hybrid between these two worlds. It could be said that this is art in real time. Art that, on the one hand, communicates current affairs, and on the other hand, an image that combines a “news” report with updates of initial feelings, connotations and “gut reactions” that pass directly, and almost unfiltered, from the thought that has not yet matured – into the hand that holds the brush.
