REX RAY - Studio, Artwork and Home

Sept. 11, 1956 - Feb 9, 2015
For many years, Rex Ray owned two units at the Allied Box Factory, a condo development conducive to artists, on Folsom Street. One unit was his residence and the other his art studio, and he spent all his waking hours in the studio creating his art, a hybrid of painting and collage. “Rex was the hardest-working artist I’ve ever met,” said Griff Williams, who has owned Gallery 16 in San Francisco for 25 years. “He literally created thousands of works, and virtually all of it has been sold to collectors, either private or public. That’s a mind-numbing feat for any artist.” (paraphrased from Sam Whiting on SF Gate)
I was honored to be able to make these photographs in Rex's studio and home in the days after his death and was extremely humbled to be in the presence of his art
