"Focus on the Figure 2 at Artspace Raleigh"

Leading up to the publishing of his upcoming book "Focus on the Figure", Eric McRay exhibits a selection of his ink wash paintings and drawings of the human figure in his Artspace studio. He has chosen the works with care from pieces he has created over the past decade.

McRay states "In my figurative female works, I aim at a truthful interpretation of the everyday woman's body; not the glamorized Hollywood or Madison Avenue beauty. Here I paint the nude in a more true-to-life way, paying tribute to the varied body types of the typical woman. I paint my figures swiftly and spontaneously in bold lines and subtle sepia tones that celebrate the average woman and set her on a pedestal of appreciation."

Join McRay Friday, September 4, 2015 from 6pm to 10pm at Artspace, Studio 205, 201 E. Davie St. (Blount St. intersection) in the Art District of Downtown Raleigh. If you have any questions concerning this exciting event, contact McRay at, or (919) 614-2174.
