You are invited to the opening reception of 
William Denton Ray: Shapeshifting
 at Gallery 924


Opening Reception: Friday, September 4, 6 – 9 pm
(during IDADA First Friday Art Tour)

Ray is well-known for his whimsical characters painted in bold, sometimes, garish colors on everything from beer bottles, cardboard boxes, and wood panels. In his new work, Ray has taken his recognizable characters and elevated them to another level through abstraction and a more subdued and neutral color palette. He has deconstructed the faces and reconstructed them into forms and shapes that have a decidedly more refined feel. He describes Shapeshifting as his new process of simplifying and abstracting his quintessential characters to the point of Pareidolia–a psychological phenomenon involving a stimulus wherein the mind perceives a familiar pattern where none actually exists. Through this new work he hopes to explore this transformation by which his familiar characters take on new life.
