Kevin Francis Gray, a London based sculptor, combines the conventions of Neoclassical sculpture with the sartorial sense of urban youth to depict disaffected men and women in various dejected poses.
Drawn heavily from both popular culture and the gritty reality of an uncompromised urban life, Gray’s subjects are people from the neighborhood surrounding his studio in London who he approached in chance meetings on the street. Gray frequently works with his subjects on multiple pieces, forming a lasting relationship between the artist and sitter.
Sculpting in fiberglass, bronze, and marble, Gray’s signature style involves obscuring the faces of his figures with floor-length frontal veils or glittering strings of beads, providing stark contrast to the figures’ otherwise contemporary garb and drawing attention to the figures’ physical forms. The luster of the works‘ surface captivates the eye as the gaze becomes transfixed on the subtle contours of each shape.
