Color dances across an abstract landscape. Lines and marks layer on top of each other creating a harmonious scene. Lu Ray paints an abstracted reality inspired by the memories and sounds of streets near queer nightlife. Both loud in the background and quiet outside. The moment you step outside the club. A moment of solitude and peace. Colorful surroundings represent larger-than-life personalities while a splash of blue slows the mind down, as if staring at a puddle by the sidewalk. Sharp lines and boxes keep the chaos contained in buildings and labels.
