Phytoplankton Inspires Art

I am so excited about being one of the artists invited by the Arts Center in Corvallis to do a work of art based on Angelicque White's research on phytoplankton. All the pieces will be shown during the da Vinci Days. Angelicque is an assistant professor at OSU and takes amazing photos of the even more amazing microscopic plants and critters in our oceans. I'll post what I come-up with as it gets done...

New Work Inspired by Architecture

Architecturally inspired paintings by Jenny Gray in the new "Structure" series.
These new paintings are abstractions of the barns, factories and mills I encounter in rural Oregon. I am fascinated by the scale and geometry of the buildings in the open landscape. The picture plane is often flattened to focus on the angles and shapes. This series has an emphasis on line, and as in past work I continue to explore color, texture and   composition. I will be having a show of this new work at OpusVII starting March 2nd 2012.

Another Year Blogging

My New Years resolution was to make my work a little more visible, with this in mind maybe I'll start keeping this blog up to date. I have updated my website with new work too.
