Untitled, 2021 [Venice Lagoon and fragments].
BROOKLYN, NY.- Fred Crays new series of unique prints present a radical new body of work. Although he continues to adhere to his previous process of transforming photographic imagery through manipulation, in this series the resulting images, based in photography, are unique works on paper.
With this exhibition of unique and extraordinary works on paper, Fred Cray culminates his Fragments series and his Fingerprint series. The feelings of change, fragility, and temporality prevalent during the pandemic are indicated by fingerprints in ink, which embody Crays singular identity, stamped over the images.
Crays multiple layers imply movement, both of time and image. The interweaving of time and image sets a cadence that is both visually rigorous and seductively intimate. Cray continues to make work that suggest that a secret is about to be revealed.
Photographs from his camera, made on his circuitous walks throughout this and other cities, pictures from the internet, and Crays own handwork, jostle for the viewers attention. Scary, joyous, optimistic yet wary, Crays photographs are always a kaleidoscopic palimpsest of life today.
Fred Cray (American, b. 1957) is a graduate of Middlebury College, and Yale Graduate School of Painting. His work is included in many collections, such as The Museum of the City of New York; Brooklyn Museum of Art; California Museum of Photography; Yale University Art Gallery. He currently lives in Brooklyn.
