Kevin Gray

Kevin was born in Lincolnshire and studied Physics at Leeds University before moving to Cardiff in 1982 to begin a career in Medical Physics at Velindre Hospital. In 2010 He was forced into early retirement by illness and since then have started to express the artistic side to his nature, painting with watercolours and acrylics and creating ceramic sculptures and digital art. Kevin also composes and records music and this love of music informs much of his visual art. Artist’s statement The pieces presented here were produced by merging photographs of my paintings and of real objects using simple tools for the iPad. The resulting images were then enlarged and printed onto acrylic glass to create each unique piece. The result is greater than the sum of its parts and I like the concept of using technology to enhance our lives, where all too often we are driven by it.
