Mid Career Retrospective

  • BY: Kevin Francis
  • DATES: Thu 16 Mar until Thu 13 Apr


Kevin Francis Gray, born in Armagh in 1972, returns to his hometown for this unique exhibition at the Market Place Gallery, Armagh.The show will focus on Gray’s career up until late 2015, showcasing his early investigations into material, from resin to porcelain; from bronze to marble. This varied selection of work gives a glimpse into the range of personal inspirations Gray draws from both his life growing up in South Armagh and the wider context of living and working in East London and its surrounding neighbourhood. The exhibition comes at a pivotal moment in his career, as Gray develops new artistic language using exclusively marble: further pushing what he sees as the possible limits of the material, as well as the opportunity to contextualise an otherwise classic material in a contemporary conversation.
