D. F. Gray.... Pastels from life

a review from my works in New Century Artist Gallery March 2013, NY NY

"The Canadian artist D. F. Gray on the other hand, works in soft pastel on paper, layering delicate strokes to evoke impressive subtleties of chiaroscuro. Gray’s “Moorcroft Vue” depicts the rolling tide, craggy rocksand foliage of a Canadian shoreline with dappled strokes, while “From Brant Point” is a moist marshy vision of one of the artists favorite painting sites."

Vincent Klein, March 2013, Gallery and Studio New York
