Ray Koh is a California based Artist and Filmmaker who conceptually paints, draws (and erases) using ocean water, time, and light. His process involves a unique mixture of aerial photography, cinematography and fine art. Similar to an archaeologist, Koh removes unnecessary elements in order to extract/reveal just what he needs to communicate his intent and ideas (never adding anything that wasn’t foraged from the original source image). Koh uses color to reveal what we could not previously see. His subject-matter ranges from classical portraits, abstraction, a deep interest in food, and Mother Nature. Koh has a deep fascination with how the ocean meets a body of land and often forages this intersection for what he terms “wild content.” Koh’s Ocean Hides are directly produced from these edge conditions and illustrate his influence from food; instead of an animal hide, he has produced an Ocean Hide. Koh considers his work 100% sustainable, organic, vegan, and local art.
