InĀ Monolith\, Wray transforms old machinery and everyday street s cenes into the artfully transcendental. Influences like Monet and Emile Gru ppe shine through\, but Wray distinguishes himself with a unique modernist touch. Wray's technique trumps the limitations of medium: through heavy\, o ften geometrical applications of oil-paint\, one can really see all three d imensions of the object depicted. Wray's works are not just paintings\; the y are chunks of the outside world transported onto canvas. It seems that fo r him\, the rusted remains of our technology-driven world and the art-deco details of New York's iconic skyline are modern day monoliths\, as full of cultural significance as the standing stones of pre-Christian civilizations .
