AM called into StolenSpace yesterday to see how the installation of David Bray’s solo show Disasters of the 20th Century was coming together. We enjoy the variety of elements Bray uses within his work, often weaving a selection of found materials and ephemera into his drawings, both inside and out the frame. What we saw at the gallery was a slight departure from his previous work that we’ve seen. Disasters narrows the focus of the work into a series of more traditional drawn and rendered works. From what we saw, the show looks strong, and the range of work available should cater for all tastes and financial abilities. Each piece of work is harmoniously framed in white – providing the perfect foil to the black painted walls.
Amongst the work going up was a series of 70 finely rendered ink drawings. Bray has made one of these drawings everyday for 70 days leading up to the exhibition. They start at £150, which seems like a pretty good deal to carry off an original piece of Bray’s work. The exhibition opens this Thursday 3rd February.
More pics of the installation coming together after the jump.
