Mike Bray creates investigations into a self-inflicted cinematic space, his work recontextualizing time, frame-by-frame, while collapsing and expanding the spectacle through the idiom of cinema. Select group exhibitions include Sometimes You Get Nowhere, Grammar Center, Medford, OR; Dumb Angel, 12128 Boatspace, Portland, OR; We Tell Ourselves Stories in Order to Live, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Eugene, OR; Lumber Room, Portland, OR; and Human Resources, Los Angeles, CA. Bray has held solo exhibitions at Portland State University, Portland, OR; Sienna Gallery, Lenox, MA; and Fourteen30 Contemporary, Portland, OR. Bray is a 2013 Hallie Ford Fellow in the Visual Arts, and the Co-Founder of Ditch Projects, an artist-run space in downtown Springfield, Oregon. He lives and works in Springfield, Oregon.
