Grey James' paintings and mixed media work reflects his personal exploration of gender identity and transition. In part an iconography of yearning. and in part a symbolism of incomplete states of being, this work is rooted in a conviction that the journey -- what is "Next" -- is more important than the destination.
In the second room of the gallery adjacent to Grey's works are a curated selection of works by Jen Heaslip titled "Before." Heaslip, as Grey James previous persona before his transition, makes this a rare opportunity to glimpse at the way in which the artist’s gaze has transitioned along with his identity.
