Kevin Francis Gray Born 1972, in Northern Ireland. Lives and works in London. He is represented by the Goff + Rosenthal Gallery in New York. Kevin’s work was posted on booooooom.com a little while back. The work is amazing, at first glance it’s a traditional bronze + marble type of work, however the topics and detailed nuances like the Ghost Girl, 2007 (see below) has cuts in her arm. Ghost Girl is a cutter. Also the fashion, hair, etc are of now. However the way it’s put on a pedestal gives it a very different feel and empasizes the skill level of his pieces.

Thank you booooooom.com
