FOLDED TIME: PAINTINGS BY LYNDA RAY AT THE PAGE BOND GALLERY THURSDAY, JULY 11 TO AUGUST 30, 2019.
Intrigued by the dichotomy of man-made architecture and nature, Lynda Ray ideates her encaustic paintings as narratives built by layering colors, forms and patterns that reveal a history of the work’s construction. Through the subtraction or scraping away of waxy pigment, Ray exposes earlier stages of development within her works, offering viewers a visceral connection to the materiality of time passing. Ray has worked in the encaustic medium since 1986, receiving a BFA in Painting from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She later attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, as well as completed Post-baccalaureate studies in Fine Arts at VCU. She has consistently exhibited on a national scale over the past two decades, and has shown with Page Bond since 2006.
