Remembering Rex Ray

Rex Ray’s artwork ranges from collage on paper, canvas and resin boards to digital work. Ray’s work is made entirely by hand. The collages are made with hand-painted and printed papers hand cut with scissors. His work combines a mid-century modern aesthetic with psychedelic color palette and shapes. Ray was known for popularizing the use of high-gloss resin panels – encasing his colorful, graphic collage designs in a gorgeous glossy layer of resin.

Ray’s collages, paintings and design work have been exhibited at galleries and museums, including The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, San Jose Museum of Modern Art, The Crocker Museum in Sacramento, and Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver. Turner Carroll Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico; Conduit Gallery in Dallas, Texas; and NYC.

Rex Ray’s exhibition are currently at the SFMOMA and San Francisco’s Gallery 16

Abstract and handcrafted, with a retrofuturistic feel, Rex Ray’s work is always identifiable, whether seen on museum or gallery walls, in hip restaurants and boutique hotels — or on book, CD covers or rock posters. He worked on a wide range of custom projects for Apple, Dreamworks, Swatch and David Bowie among others.

We at B+N Industries are proud to have worked with him; his inimitable talent forged into our lines of Infused Veneer™ Panels and carved relief Iconic Panels™. Rex Ray’s feel for wood grain, pattern, and shape melds perfectly with the warmth and graphic quality of these exclusive product lines. Whether used in retail, hospitality, or contract applications, this collection will be sure to bring an impactful and individualistic aesthetic to any interior.

Jamie Durie & B+N: Come Meet The Designer

Who: Designer Jamie Durie with B+N Industries

When: Wednesday, March 29th, 11:00 AM

Where: GlobalShop, B+N Booth 4343, Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas

B+N Industries is honored to introduce a special collaboration
with international award-winning designer and author, Jamie Durie.

Durie and his team have created a unique design language called “transterior”: creating seamless transitions between the indoors & out. This philosophy of taking the outdoors inside, and the indoors outside, forges a greater connection to nature in a sophisticated and carefully curated environment inspired by nature and natural elements and textures.

Our acclaimed Infused Veneer and Iconic Panel Collections are a perfect vehicle
to translate Jamie’s vision of imbuing interior spaces with the natural world.
The result: a collection that will dramatically and elegantly transform spaces –
all with a symbiotic relationship of imagery and patterns driven by design
and created by nature.

Come on by and meet Jamie, hear him speak,
and ask questions about his inimitable outlook on design.
