Vince Briffa b. 1958


My work centres on the co-existence of dualities. It treads blurred borders and investigates uncertain divides between opposing poles. It synthesises extremities, and acts as a seam that binds together disparate realities. 

Uncertain of its own actuality, it questions its own being.

I am not a painter or sculptor, I am also not a filmmaker or a writer. 

I produce 'work'. 

It is my vocabulary. It is the vehicle that best embodies my thoughts and connects all my creative output.
Artist and academic. Works in a variety of media and produces gallery and site-specific work, objects and installations integrating often traditional artistic practices with digital and electronic media.
