#ericagrayartist
I'm an artist, designer, maker, with an extensive working background within the fashion industry. This wealth of knowledge has been adaped to produce an array of stitched, moulded and assembled pieces. Initially influenced by garment design and their construction processes, I now utilises similar principles as well as adapted 3D technologies to produce much of my current work.  

Sculpture; textured and structured forms dominate my work, as does the incorporation of synthetic materials and 3D printed elements. Works that often contain reference to personal experiences, concerns for humanity, our environment as well as the treatment of animals.  

Painting; utilising meticulously placed brush strokes, I aim to enhance natural elements, capturing an essence of personality and layered characterisation within my painted portraits.
  
Wearables; My fascination and interest in exotic materials, natural structures and incorporated 3D technologies and  sculptured forms, have naturally progressed to incorporate a blend of traditional hand sewn techniques along with freehand extruded (stereoscopic) drawn or machine 3D printed componentry. 
Wearable Art by Erica Gray artist....My designs have been displayed within exhibitions, such as the World of Wearableart Awards Show (WOW), Sartorial (Vivid, Sydney) & The Iconic Mars Modern Art Museum (RU), fashion / Tech runway shows, photographed in collaborative shoots, worn by performers/ artists, including vocalists, experimental dance, international models, videographers & stylists.
