Casey Gray (b.1983 Palo Alto, CA) is an contemporary artist working primarily in painting and occasionally in printmaking, illustration and site-specific murals. His work explores our relationship to common objects, their ability to hold meaning and create identity in an era when it is no longer necessary to commit information to memory, and where notions of ownership are nebulous. Through a filter informed by past experience and a hopeful albeit dystopic future, Gray composes his findings into visually complex still life arrangements inspired by personal and universal narratives. His work is characterized by his commitment to aerosol paints and laborious hand cut masking techniques, resulting in a type of skewed hyper-realism.
