Channing Gray is an illustrative artist working at the intersection of temporal motifs, dream-spaces, and celestial cartography. She draws stories through scenes of circular compositions, intertwining bodies, and floating objects to create gravity-less realms of her nomadic memory. When she shifted between homes, she found connections with miscellany objects to the temporary spaces she inhabited. The symbolism of her work is inspired by astronomy charts, where charting entities gave a place to her nostalgia. She uses painting, bookmaking, found objects and installations to add a connection between a graphic novel aesthetic with a poetic mapping of her displacement. Gray’s work explores themes of identity, time, and place - where her tumbling memories are guides as she shifts between spaces.
