Born and raised in Wayland, Mass., Owen Gray has painted in Maine, Massachusetts, and New York, a true East Coast native son New Englander. When he moved to New York, he began to study with Nicholas Carone and Leland Bell at The Studio School.
Of Gray’s paintings, New York Times critic Ken Johnson wrote that “his stroke is relaxed, but exacting” and described Gray’s concerns and “all-over abstractions as a kind of primordial, peaceable kingdom, as far from the frenetic hard-edged modernity of New York City as one could get. It is also a slightly creepy and scary Freudian never-never land where the ego lives in close touch with churning instinctual energies.”
