Fine artist specialising in ceramics.
Ray Church brings the classical pottery of ancient Greece up-to-date with satirical social commentary and urban imagery."
The inspiration for Ray’s work is drawn directly from the use of imagery on classical pottery originating from Greece. He mixes classical form with the contemporary image to create works of art that take on issues such as class, digital culture and social stereotypes.

Society often reflects the dynamics inherent within each individual making up the whole, so it follows that dysfunction on a micro level plays out on a macro stage.
Inner turmoil often leads to outer war, sexual confusion to perverse action, self doubt to social displacement.
When social mobility seems tainted by the polarisation of wealth and poverty, sub-cultures and subversive realities form like germs trapped on a petri dish, and is this trapping not a state of mind? Childhood trauma lurks like a shadow following, whispering doubts, holding the strings; are we then just puppets to our own pasts?
These issues and questions being addressed in Social Deformity by ten extraordinary artists.
