Brad Gray

I enjoy the process of applying layered paint through glazes, sanding, spraying and scraping back and then rebuilding to form a rich history and ‘web’ of steps both forward and back.

My work references a world we live in, but also one not entirely of our own. I often focus on the dualities of life and the contradictions within us sometimes with a spiritual leaning. At times I play with words to stimulate content and have a strong narrative observing the absurdity and Pathos of a situation.

I’ve been moving, settling, moving on and travelling most of my life and my experiences gathered along the way have formed a vast library of ideas which I refer back to and incorporate into my work.
