A student of the Expressionist painter Rudi Gopas, Ross Gray graduated from the University of Canterbury in 1967. Although MFA studies in 2002 pared back his style, elements of Expressionism still exist, typically in painterly abstracted images. Gray’s art shifts between abstraction and figuration, but sustaining a connected body of work is important to his practice. Since the mid-1990s his focus has been on the importance of heritage buildings to city identity and memory – a stance he has maintained publicly in post-earthquake Christchurch. Gray is represented in numerous private and public collections including Auckland Art Gallery and Christchurch Art Gallery.
