Rex Ray: Happy Hands Do the Devil’s Work

Drawing inspiration from his acknowledged influences—the Arts and Crafts Movement, Abstract Expressionism, organic and hard-edged abstraction, pattern and textile design, and Op Art—Ray combines these formalist concepts with decorators’ tips gleaned from lowbrow publications and sources of popular culture. His work is widely exhibited at museums, including SFMOMA, San Jose Museum of Modern Art, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, CA, and recently at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver.

Opening Reception Friday, 9 July 2010 from 5 to 7pm.
Rex Ray Lecture: SITE Santa Fe, Thursday, 8 July 2010 at 6pm.
