SPOTLIGHT: Sculptural Artist Kevin Francis Gray
Sometimes you come across an artist whose work both intrigues and disturbs you, to the extent that you find it hard to tear yourself away from that which you are viewing… One such being is Irishman Kevin Francis Gray.
At first glance, Kevin Francis Gray’s work looks like a series of classic European sculptures, but closer examination reveals the busts and statues to be modeled after contemporary subjects, ordinary men and women from his London community.
You can’t help but be fixed to each piece, it’s all very captivating and unique. Innovative in it’s own weird way.
“Rich in opposition, these sculptures project a sense of nobility and admiration for an often marginalized and consciously melancholic inner-city youth subculture.”
