Darren Ray works across sculptural practices which include a range of media, video, objects, and performance. Processes of appropriation, assemblage and post-production are constants throughout his work, and projects often respond to contexts of place, site, encounter and dialogue(s).
Recent projects feature large-scale sculptural constructions which frequently refer to historical structures or fictional events. These include: ‘Arlene’s Furnace’, Goonhilly Green, UK, (2015); ‘Dropper’s’, OSR Space, UK (2016); ‘Wall to Wall’, California, USA (2016); ‘Natural Building’, Scotland (2016); ‘Silent Running’, RojaArtLab, Latvia (2018).
Darren studied Fine Art at Falmouth University and is currently training as a hypnotherapist. His research focus is on how the creation of shelter can develop thinking around the human psyche.
