Fay Ray
American, b. 1978

The California artist Fay Ray explores the fetishization of objects and the construction of female identity through high-contrast, monochrome photomontages. Her works are inspired by fashion shoots and surrealist collages. Ray fragments glamorous signifiers into sensuous shapes, taking animal skin, diamanté, fishnet, and reflective surfaces, and pasting them together with images of hands, hair, and feet. The status of objects is also spotlighted in Ray’s three-dimensional works; Intimacy (2012) combines natural forms with manmade materials, featuring conch shells—which could be mistaken for tongues—embedded in Hydrocal plaster. Ray’s hanging sculptures recall weighted dream catchers with their crystals, palm sheaths, and silver chains.
