Opening Reception Friday, July 15, 2011 from 5 to 7pm.
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.
