The one thing memorable about the recent Snow White film was the re-designed mirror on the wall concept. And since then, english based sculptor Kevin Francis Gray – the original source of the piece, has been a modern inspiration. Those out in NY, visit Haunch of Venison gallery for his opening show on from Sept 4 – Sept 29.
“New York: Haunch of Venison is showing London-based artist Kevin Francis Gray’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. The exhibition showcases several of Gray’s porcelain, bronze and marble sculptures that merge elements of both classicism and the sculpted human form with an aesthetic that contextualises the work firmly within the visual landscape of contemporary society.
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.”
