Thomas Wray is from a Scottish and Italian family,
Wray’s work primarily explores and observes the relationship between materials and their cultural history. Addressing existential questions without ever wanting to give any answers, often making use of the ready-made with minimal intervention.
Wray’s work re-contextualises how we perceive materials, looking deeper into their history but still focusing on the aesthetic nature. Hoping to bring together timeless questions about the divine, his work identifies links with cultural history and art history within subtle forms of wit.
