The Graey is an interdisciplinary, Vancouver-based youth artist collective at Satellite Gallery. Together, they travel the in-betweens and grey areas of the city’s diverse community of artists, trying to piece together their own voices. The collective responds to the artistic and cultural pulse of the city through public art projects, art interventions, and individual art explorations. Through the wide-ranging experiences that have shaped each individual member, they come together as a collective not only to make sense of it all but to engage in a conversation with their city, its art, and its public.
I’m majoring in Fine Arts at Simon Fraser University. I don’t have a preferred medium, rather I enjoy starting with concepts, then look at the materiality of specific mediums to incorporate, which will present these concepts to their fullest potential to start a conversation. I’m currently playing around with photography, installations, sculpture, painting and drawing but I’d also like to try other mediums such as video, sound, and printmaking.
Lately, I’ve become progressively more interested in conceptual art and artists, such as Sol Lewitt and Bruce Nauman. I’ve also recently become interested with works by Rachel Whiteread, Francis Alÿs, and Anish Kapoor. A recent theme I had explored was the idea of subtraction/removal, the relation between an object and its purpose, and the relation between time, value, and result (physical and metaphysical).
Outside of art, I love exploring and traveling to new local or faraway places. My adventures are usually motivated by food, landscape/cityscape, art, weather, or just the need to experience something refreshing.
