Randy Wray recycles and transforms humble materials such as junk mail, polystyrene packaging, discarded clothing, and furniture to explore ideas about alchemy and faith. His sculptures and assemblages mix Americana imagery with passages of material-driven abstraction and balance seemingly opposite sensibilities.
