6 Burlington Gardens

Kevin Francis Gray

Online Preview Now Open

Dec 3, 2020 – Feb 13, 2021

Pace Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of new work by Kevin Francis Gray at 6 Burlington Gardens. On view from 25 November 2020 to 13 February 2021, the exhibition will run concurrently with a solo exhibition of Gray’s work at the Museo Stefano Bardini, Florence, Italy (on view until 21 December 2020, organized by Eduardo Secci Contemporary and MUSE).

At the core of Kevin Francis Gray’s practice is an interrogation of the intersection of traditional sculptural techniques and contemporary life. Rather than working towards classical ideals of beauty, Gray relies on textural surfaces as opposed to facial or bodily expressions to imbue his sculptures with psychological realism. Furthering Gray’s decade of working with marble, this new work pushes the possibilities of the artist’s sculptural practice into new territories of physical and psychological expression. These works are intimately linked to a period of intense self-reflection in the artist’s life, which imbues them with a sense of both serenity and fragility.
