On the verge of turning 21, my early childhood years were spent traveling the country with my family. From out the car window I was fortunate to see most of America and behold its beautiful scenery and animals, and with my fathers artistic assistance and my mothers encouraging spirit, these sights turned into inspiration that has carried into my work today. My work primarily consists of fantasy creatures both dark and eerie or light and endearing, as well as whimsical landscapes, and are almost always completed in traditional medias such as gouache, watercolor, and ink.

August’s Artist – Ray Gilbert

Raymond J. Gilbert (1966) American artist born in Lynn, Massachusetts, studied at BostonSchool of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University (BFA 1993). Working in multiple mixed mediums and limited addition wood cuts in a contemporary expressionist style.

My first memories of art was the smell of linseed oil in my grandfather’s kitchen which doubled as his studio.  My own art began with whatever paints and brushes came my way. With the exception of a few years in the 80’s were my creative energies were focused in a post punk band my primary focus has been visual.  Though music and songwriting still intermingle in my creative process, it, like myself has become a little more unplugged.

My work looks at time lines of where we have been (collectively as well as personally) where we are and where we could be. It’s about journeys.

Often my work is jammed with images and metaphors as a Marquez novel or Dylan song, telling stories of the world both socially as well as spiritually.

“An internal response to an external image is in my opinion one of the highest achievements of visual art, it is something that stays with you, it transcends borders or language it is global…for all people. It is this desire to speak beyond cultures to that common thread that links us all which continues to drive my work to whatever end it finds.”
