Julie Gray – Waiting Room

Waiting Room depicts a domestic space full of personal effects, houseplants, dated electronics and one lone chair, all created with naive materials including papier-mâché, yarn, paper, clay, acrylic, and other like materials. Gray takes inspiration from her grandmothers’ longing to pass away and their collective sense of loneliness, loss and anticipation in reuniting with their partners. The physical space created in the installation nods to the psychological space of “limbo”, of physically being in one space but mentally and emotionally residing in another plane. Through the use of naive/childlike materials, Gray aims to bring levity and even humor to such somber subject matter.
