Van Ray's work reflect a fusion of street art, pop art and contemporary art - retaining the basic elements of his distinctive artistic style without loosing sight of his intended social criticism. His recent work makes use of various techniques, such as aerosol paint, acrylic paint, collage and decollage, on iron sheets, acrylic glass, wooden slats or retro vending machines.
GIN HUANG Gallery is happy to invite German artist Van Ray’s work to be exhibited in Taiwan, which is his very first solo exhibition “Van Ray Solo Show” in Asia. The artist uses antiques from the early 19th to 20th centuries as a base for creation, and uses the concept of time and history to combine with contemporary images.
Joyce Pensato who was born in Brooklyn, New York, the USA where she continues to live and work. Her paints exuberant, explosive large-scale likenesses of cartoon characters and comic-book heroes. Her seemingly frenzied technique – actually involving the deliberate accretion of successive layers of bold linear gestures, rapid spattering, and frequent erasures – results in alternately humorous and sinister imagery. While her prima facie subject matter ranges from Batman, The Simpsons and MickeyMouse to Felix the Cat and Elmo from Sesame Street.
