Rex Ray established a distinct abstract vocabulary, drawing inspiration from the Arts and Crafts Movement, organic and hard edge abstraction, as well as pattern and textile design. His recognizable hand and acclaimed
abstraction made him a staple in the international art and design scene.
Contained in this book are rarely seen early works, designs for Radiohead, the Pixies, and David Bowie among others, studio and installation photos, and a deep survey of Rex Ray’s signature works on panel and canvas.
Includes essays by Griff Williams, Kevin Killian, and Rene P. Barilleaux, Chief Curator of the McNay Museum in San Antonio, Texas along with a poem by Norma Cole.
