Philip Gray’s solo show had its opening last Saturday in the Bold Art Gallery in Galway. Philip did a live painting demonstration with pastel that afternoon. Everybody in the gallery gave a bit of their touch on it and Philip did a painting with all the colours and forms that people had drawn.
In 2008 Philip made a voyage of discovery to the Bahamas in search of a new pallet to express the tonal variations at the heart of the world’s oceans. Here he created a vibrant series of images featuring the tropical shades of a sea and sky bathed in dazzling sunlight.
One of his painting created under those water infested by sharks is actually on display in bold art gallery.
