Philip Gray

This project involves painting in a number of different extreme environments that are completely uncompromising, such as in shark infested waters, on top of Mount Everest, at the Northpole, while skydiving, in the presence of wild animals, etc.

The purpose being that the emotional, physical and psychological trials the artist experiences in these situations will obviously affect the way the work is produced and so his art is as much about the creation and fearlessness of the work as it is about the image itself.

Details of an exhibition of his work showing from 8th to 29th of October in Buckley’s, Clonakilty, Co. Cork can be found here.
