Captured Stillness


From Shray’s newest series, From My Fingers, My Heart Sighs, Shray creates these one-of-a-kind visceral works, all shaped by hand without the use of sculpting tools.

Her simplicity of form has been compared to that of Henry Moore, Rodin and Brancusi. “I see the emotion in the form, the hard lines, the curves, and allow them to carry the human condition through and around the negative and positive spaces. I am concerned with the fine line between the individual and humanity and how to achieve this without succumbing to […]
