Columbia Threadneedle Prize 2016
Kevin Francis Gray
Kevin Francis Gray’s work uses the neoclassical style of sculpture to produce images of contemporary urban life. Hoodies and trainers are carved in marble and bronze.
“His work addresses the complex relationship between abstraction and figuration and 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.” PACE London
