Indya Gray

Engaging with the ever-pertinent discussion of climate change, Indya Gray has focused on the issues surrounding rainfall and the increased incidence of flooding. This area of climate change is one that has impacted on her home town in Aberdeenshire, leaving visible traces on the land and affecting the livelihoods of those that live there.

An interest in the form and forces that water creates, has led Gray to visualise her ideas through print, water colour, oil paint and embroidery. Taking her inspiration from flooding, down to the rain drops themselves, has seen her use repetition and multiples as a means to convey the effects of water moving as a mass. She has complementing these works with diagrams of flood prevention schemes, through which she has sought to widen the debate around the cause and effect of flooding.
