Frank Gray, a prolific and superbly talented artist and photographer was encouraged by the critical success of his first solo exhibition in Manchester back in 1982 and went on to establish successful working relationships with commercial art galleries throughout England. A few years later, intrigued by advances in computer technology, Frank became a 3D computer animator and then a video editor. Moving to London gave him the opportunity to resume painting culminating in two exhibitions in Camden – the first with Tessanna Hoare and Ken Butler and the second with sculptor, Adam Kops, and the internationally renowned photographer, Peter Lavery. More recently, Frank has exhibited across East Anglia and at the West Bank Gallery in Notting Hill.
Considering the subject of this exhibition, it may be surprising that Frank actually has an ambivalent relationship with the sea! It dominates his work because it is an encompassing metaphor of the human condition and has an intrinsic diverse aesthetic but he gains little enjoyment from being in a boat or swimming in the sea! Now living in Burnham Market close to an inspiring Norfolk coastline, Frank revels in its proximity
Private View is 6pm – 8.30pm on Thursday March 16 – please come along to meet the artist, view his work and enjoy a glass or two!
