David Gray

David's signature style reveals a personal and contemporary expression of beauty and order which pays homage to the Classical Tradition in its craftsmanship. Collectors of David's work often relate that his painting evoke a sense of peace, stillness, or a contemplative mood. His award winning works have been covered by major art publications including Southwest Art, Art of the West, and American Art Collector. David also teaches several workshops per year in portraiture and still life painting  throughout the United States and abroad. 

​Fans of David's work will notice a change in style beginning in late 2017. This new style, while retaining the mastery of draftsmanship characteristic of earlier work, finds a new freedom of brushwork and color application. This new dialect of painting is influenced in part by French Impressionism of the late 19th century, particularly the work of Monet. Forms are often suggested rather than completely rendered, though a solidly sculpted structure is still evident. David's former work communicated a stirring beauty and meditative stillness. His current painting will push that expression into a new strength of emotion through bold brushwork, inventiveness, and a new found creative conviction.
