"Jimi's Nightmare" (Distorted Guitar #1) (31x13x2) is the first sculpture in Bruce's upcoming series of distorted guitars. This sculpture by sculptor Bruce Gray is a Fender Squire guitar that was cut up and reassembled. This guitar sculpture was made for The Zimmer Children's Museum in Los Angeles and will be featured at "Show & Tell: The Art of Harmony." Bruce states that "I have always found musical instruments to be fascinating, comprised of interesting shapes, and very beautiful to look at. The electric guitar with its curves and sleek glossy finish reminds me of expensive Italian sportscars or a woman's body. This is a perfect subject matter for the artist to transform into their own unique vision. A distorted musical instrument has a surreal quality, and this sculpture is an homage to Picasso's deconstucted instrument paintings and assemblages."
Bruce Gray's contemporary and abstract modern metal and wood sculptures have been displayed as part of group or solo art exhibitions at many Art Galleries and Art Museums from Santa Monica to Soho and abroad. The Los Angeles sculptor and artist is also well known for his kinetic sculptures which include mobiles and stabiles, amazing gravity defying suspended super power magnet sculptures, and rolling ball sculptures. Gray's sculptures, abstract paintings, and art furniture are part of over 1100 private and corporate art collections worldwide, and have appeared in hundreds of movies, TV shows, music videos, and commercials, as well as frequently in the press.
