“In my work I look at cultural mythologies that misrepresent nature and our relationship to it,” writes Christine Gray. Her most recent body of work focuses on the American myth of the seeker, “traveling alone through untouched landscapes in search of a revelatory experience of the divine.” “Through the arrangement of objects,” Gray continues, “the absent character in my paintings actively imagines the sublime in nature with limited access to its vistas. Natural objects are combined with man-made materials to achieve a device, costume, or shelter that encourages the spiritual journey that they seek.”

Christine Gray has shown work at Okay Mountain in Austin (January 16th—February 13th); at the Cress Gallery of Art, Chattanooga; at Alfred University; and at Project 4 Gallery in Washington, DC, where she is represented. Opening February 27th, her work will show at RARE in New York. She is based in Richmond, Virginia, where she is an Assistant Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University.
