Statement

Peter N. Gray expresses inherent sculptural aesthetics of science.  His residency in Marseille, France and extensive travels in Asia bring additional influences to the artistic aspects of science.  Current works depict aspects of genographic migration, genetic structure, and/or antibody action.  He has been an Illinois Road Scholar with solo and group sculpture exhibitions in Chicago at Johnsonese, Morpho and other galleries and group exhibitions in New York and San Francisco.  For the past two years he has been using the National Geographic Society's Genographic Migration project to teach sculpture and genetics in a special elementary school program on Chicago's Southside.  This includes mapping of the migration of our ancient ancestors starting approximately 120,000 years ago.  His large-scale public sculptures are in the Lincolnwood Sculpture Park, MYMA Sculpture Center, and Dixon School, as well as Johnson, Vermont.  Mr. Gray received training in art and graphics at the Delaware Art Institute and a graphic design firm and continued artistic development while earning degrees from the University of Delaware, Northwestern University Medical School, and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the M. D. Anderson Tumor Institute.   He has received grants and awards for art from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, the Vermont Studio Center, the Chicago Renaissance Center and the Lincoln Park Lakeview Community Art Initiative.
