About the Artist:

John Griswold’s works are the product of classicist tropes fused with surrealist modes. Building an ever-expanding lexicon of symbolic devices appropriated from 17th century emblem books, baroque mythological iconography, and alchemical treatises, his video tableaux serve as the foundation for his paintings, which, in turn, are captured, dissected and layered back into more source material for the films. Griswold’s background in art conservation informs his archaic painting technique. He is based in Los Angeles posting under the name Liberveritatis, his videos accessible through YouTube.
