Kevin Francis Gray

 

The Artist

Kevin Francis Gray was born in 1972, Northern Ireland. He studied at the National College of Art & Design in Dublin. After that, he attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and in 1999 he graduated at Goldsmith College with an MA in Fine Arts. He currently lives and works between London and Pietrasanta. He has generated bodies of work which address the complex relationship between abstraction and figuration.
Kevin Francis Gray's dedication to realism in his work, the meticulous attention to detail in his subject matter, and the use of materials such as bronze and marble may seem conventional to some viewers of contemporary art yet it is precisely this material and visual reference point that remains unconventional.
The work aims to transcend the natural and the material in both form and subject matter, seeking to render a physical perfection that is not reached in the temporal world. This tension between the real and unreal lends itself to a worthwhile questioning of contemporary definitions of tradition and innovation.
His work has been included in exhibitions at: Pace Gallery (2017 and 2013); Haunch of Venison, New York (2012); Nieuw Dakota (2011); Tel Aviv Museum of Art (2011); Museum of Contemporary Art of the Val de-Marne, (2009); Palazzo San Pasquale, Venice (2009); Musee d'Art Modern de Saint-Etienne (2009); Sudeley Castle (2008); Gloucestershire (2008); ARTIUM, Centro-Museo Vasco de Arte Contemporáneo (2008); Palazzo Arti Napoli (2005); the Royal Academy, London (2002); Habitat, Cologne (2001); Art Space, New York (2000).
