LONDON MOUNT STREET "BLACK MOON" MARBLE, ABALONE SHELL, ALUMINUM, AND ZINC PLATED CHAIN LINK
MELBOURNE COLLINS STREET "DUNES 2 HONEYCOMB", 2018 ALUMINUM, ZINC PLATED FIXTURES, AND HONEY ONYX


LOS ANGELES-BASED ARTIST FAY RAY EXPLORES THE FETISHIZATION OF OBJECTS AND THE CONSTRUCTION OF FEMALE IDENTITY THROUGH HIGH-CONTRAST, MONOCHROME PHOTOMONTAGES AND METALLIC SCULPTURE. FOR HER THREE-DIMENSIONAL WORKS, FAY RAY COMPILES CAST ALUMINUM OBJECTS, BORED VOLCANIC ROCKS, WIRE, CHAIN, AND NATURAL MATERIALS INTO SUSPENDED SCULPTURAL MASSES.


RAY’S DUNES 2 HONEYCOMB (2018) CENTERS UPON IDEAS OF SERENITY AND CHAOS. REMINISCENT OF A WIND-CHIME, A FEMININE TRINKET DESIGNED TO MAKE SOOTHING SOUNDS OUT OF THE TURBULENT BREEZE, THIS ARCH-SHAPED SCULPTURE FEATURES TWO SIZABLE SILVER CHAINS WITH A SLAB OF HONEY ONYX DANGLING AT EACH END. THIS VARIETY OF MINERAL ECHOES THE SURFACE OF VENUS IN COLOR AND SWIRLING DESIGN. WHILE THIS PLANET DEDICATED TO THE GODDESS OF LOVE MAY SEEM TEMPERATE AND PARADISIACAL, THE VIEWER KNOWS THAT THIS IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE. MODERN ASTRONOMY ASSERTS THAT VENUS’S ATMOSPHERE IS TUMULTUOUS, INHOSPITABLE, AND RIFE OF TOXIC GREENHOUSE GASES.
