Kevin Francis Gray’s neoclassicist-inspired sculptures are beautifully minimalist. Most of his work is created with leather, bronze, marble or fibreglass resin, depicting a stunning color palette of white, black, grey, brown, and gold. His subject is the human form and much of his work features shrouded figures. Gray attends to the detail and subtlety of the drapery that contain his figures, sometimes with a shocking element. His work exudes a familiarity and universality that is at once haunting and captivating. His work recently appeared in 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman as a darker version of the mirror man. Gray was born in Northern Ireland and currently lives in London
Clay Hickson‘s work has got that “Saved By The Bell intro meets a Matisse collage meets a Lichtenstein painting meets Greco-Roman sculpture” feel to it. He takes you into simple rooms occupied by simple foods, simple men, and simple women, with great speed and pacing. He uses an ancient and modern language. It’s a pleasant viewing experience. He tumbles and flicks.
