Daniel Bernard Gray: The Blood of Sound Comes Rushing Up
The Art Galleries at TCU presentsThe Blood of Sound Comes Rushing Up, Danial Bernard Gray‘s MFA Thesis Exhibition. The Blood of Sound Comes Rushing Upwill be on view at Moudy Gallery from April 1 - 5, 2019, with an opening reception on Monday, April 1st, from 5-7pm.
The Blood of Sound Comes Rushing Up is a fixation on the role that communication plays in close, personal relationships. Gray uses his own successes and failures to connect with the people closest to him to create an atmosphere of introspection and emotional resonance. The work in the exhibition ranges from an installation of interconnected videos to delicate drawings made with breath and soil, to evocative musical compositions that fill the gallery with sound.
Daniel Bernard Gray’s art examines the world in which we live -- a world that is at once beautiful and terrifying, ordered and confusing, safe and violent. These examinations have taken a variety of forms, such as unannounced performances in public spaces; evocative videos of violent acts; sculptural objects that utilize loaded imagery: and poems and songs that borrow heavily from historic texts and documents.
In 2011 Gray co-founded Zosima Gallery with partner Billi London-Gray. The project started as a house gallery in San Marcos, Texas, and has transitioned to a flag pole, located in a residential neighborhood in Arlington, TX. Gray recently held a two-person exhibition at 5th Base Gallery in London, UK, and prior to that was an artist-in-residence at AIR Frosterus – a residency located in idyllic and rural Kärsämäki, Finland. Currently, he is an MFA candidate at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas.
