Nathan Gray

5 – 30 January 2014


Nathan Gray’s latest works improvise within self imposed time and material constraints. They aim to have an economy and lightness of touch that deflects attention from the “work” aspect of the artwork. More generally they are improvisations with the time limits and economic constraints of the artist's life.


His work for Plinth Projects, Queen Size, pays tribute to the inner spring mattress; its centrality to our lives, its difficult materiality, durability and portability and its soft horizontal contrast to the rigid verticality of the plinth.
