San Francisco-based artist Casey Gray’s formally composed still-life and cabinet paintings gain inspiration from his everyday experience. Digitally sourced objects are chosen and composed in a way to suggest a non-linear narrative that is both real and imagined. The artist is interested in using images without context or history and injecting new importance into them by their association with and relation to other images. The works are an attempt at communicating the artist’s complex relationship to the world around him, and are an exploration into the overlap of virtual and actual reality.
