This month we focus on Irish sculptor Kevin Francis Gray.
Gray’s neoclassicist-inspired sculptures are beautifully minimalist; yet never lacking in the depth department. His sculptures possess a ‘hidden in plain sight’ quality that make them immediately intoxicating.
Most of his work is created with leather, bronze, marble or fiberglass resin (all of which we find divinely delectable) in a palette of stunning white, black, grey, brown, and gold.
His subject, the human form, often features shrouded figures…which may or may not have inspired some face-less shots in our own spread this past weekend.
Gray attends to the detail and subtlety of the drapery that contain his figures, with a fluidity that only his chosen mediums can portray.
It’s the shocking element, ie:the track marks from ghost girl, & her hidden facial skull (image 3+4 in the spread above), which is the aforementioned perceived ’hidden’ element (not immediately blatant) that quickly reeled us in.
His work exudes a familiarity and universality that is at once haunting, and amazingly captivating.
Keep doing what you’re doing, and if could you please, do it here in Aus sometime soon?
