Richard Gray's artistic investigations use industrial and scientific image-capture technologies to explore new ways of considering the genre and role of human representation. Gray is particularly interested in exploring portraits, their indexical connection to visual systems, and the dialectic relationships these devices connote between notions of the visible and sub-visible.
