Michael Gray’s paintings are a direct reflection of his love for the natural venues that inspire his art.
His work can be seen in public, private and corporate collections throughout the country and is widely acclaimed for his dedication and mastery of traditional Impressionists technique.
Gray paints extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe but is most renowned as a master of the Low Country landscape. His perspectives represent very personal and private views and corners that create an intimate feeling of place.
His use of light, color and brush stroke have come to be compared to turn of the century Impressionist Masters such as Daniel Garber, Granville Redmond and Camille Pissaro. In a recent article, Gray was called “...a romantic Impressionist with great collectability...”, a mantle that he proudly wears.
Beyond the studio, the artist is a highly sought lecturer and clinician. His painting seminars are a seasonal favorite among artists and weekend painters across the country. The artist may also be found serving as artist in residence in a variety of educational venues including colleges, secondary schools and universities.
Gray’s current series is a reflection of the forgotten roads and paths of the South Carolina Low Country. The paintings depict a wide range of location and mood and are highly prized for the personal effect they have on the viewer. His works range in size from 5 x7 to mural size canvases of over 8 feet.
The artist work can be found in the corporate, private and public collections throughout the country.
