Bobbie Gray - Mystery March
Spray paint on routered ply 400 x 600
Bobbie Gray is a New Zealand born, Auckland-based artist. Selected sections of chewed-out floorboards are magnified and presented as individual compositions, generating a language all of their own. They could be mistaken for words or symbols of some foreign or ancient language. Each work is meticulously finished with a precise colour palette, creating an aesthetic of contemporary design while portraying a feature common only to places of the past. Poised between sculpture and painting, these hand-routed, human-scale engravings are traces of the vast, yet complex realities that lie beneath the surface of our own existence.
