Summit Art artist, Carole Gray, will be exhibiting work at MCC- Cultural Arts Center Gallery.
Gray uses transparent and opaque layerings of color in oil with more isolated color fields in acrylic as well. The color juxtapositions result in an impression of movement or continuity/discontinuity of components. Gray's work tends to focus on natural shapes, patterns from nature, and compelling ideas that come to her attention when she least expects them. Her work deals with tedious practices and incredible detail, chaos and ambiguity and the rearranging of objects and shapes in an unfamiliar way. Her influences come from the environment, architecture, other artists, news, everyday ordinary things, or exotic monumental events. Her process is that of close observation and then looking past the obvious to alter what she sees. Gray's work is center around the interconnectivity of all things with their surroundings.
