Leo Ray, Infinite Painting

February 24, 2017-May 28, 2017

Infinite Painting is a solo exhibition of paintings by Leo Ray, an Israel based artist. This is the artist's first solo exhibition in the U.S. On entering the gallery, visitors are greeted by an enormous blue and black wall of densely installed paintings. The installation of the contemplative blue field was intentionally planned to mark the transition between the two sides of the gallery.

On entering the gallery, visitors are greeted by an enormous blue and black wall of densely installed paintings. The contemplative blue field was intentionally planned to mark the transition between the two sides of the gallery. The Infinite Painting unfolds from right to left and depicts portraits of friends and family, dogs, cats, donkeys, and birds, in addition to a significant number of quotes from well-known paintings.

Each of the ninety-eight canvases are extensions of adjacent canvases and contain unifying elements of the entire Infinite Painting, allowing the viewer a chance for contemplation and reflection.


The Jesuit Mission Collection (3rd Floor) and the Modern and Contemporary Artwork (2nd Floor) are open.

Higher purpose. Greater good.
