Artist Profile: Mindy Bray

Until recently, Mindy Bray’s work was entirely uncollectable. Much of Mindy’s works were installations directly on gallery walls – large, yet momentary additions to their contiguous surroundings. Until recently, the majority of her work was short-lived: at the end of each exhibition each piece would be painted over. Learn more about Mindy’s interesting techniques in this issue’s Artist Profile.
