Article 1
Erica Gray lives and works on the Gold Coast, QLD, Australia. In practice she often switches between medium which include painting, 3D formed, wearable art and soft sculpture. Initially influenced by garment design and the construction processes, Gray utilises similar principles to produce soft sculpture and installation art. Her art often contains reference to personal experiences, as well as concerns for humanity, our environment and the treatment of animals. The pieces often translate into works comprising a blend of human and animalistic form that is often layered with meaning, through to pieces designed to play on emotions; works that toy with childhood memories and growing up, spending time on farms, disjointed family connections, empathy for the lost, a love of animals as well as the fun times amongst a family full of plumbers.  
Her goal in life, as in her art, is to produce works that represent her moods and ideals, from bright and cheerful, through to a representation of other expressions. 
Some of Erica’s achievements include a win of the Award for Artistic Excellence in the 2017 Strand Ephemera, Runner-Up in the Wearable Technology Award in the 2017 World of WearableArt Awards Show, a win in the Creative Excellence section in the prestigious World of Wearable Art Awards 2012, a joint recipient in the Awards for Artistic Excellence in the 2011 Strand Ephemera, Honourable Mention for Gen-I Creative Excellence Section – 2013 World of WearableArt (WOW) NZ and Highly Commended in the Sculpture in the Gaol 2012.
