Ray Wiggs (b 1957) is an American artist/painter, living and working in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Wiggs attended L’Accademia Belle Arti in Perugia, Italy where he obtained a classical training. He is a confident artist who enjoys stretching his limits and employing his talents to a variety of subjects ranging from the figure, to the marine-scape and landscape.
Working in oils, his palette is alluring and ranges from moody darks to sensuously saturated reds, yellows and blues. He builds his paints up in multiple layers and glazes to achieve a richness of tone. At times his work has a narrative context, while at other times the artist focuses on subjects which hold his aesthetic attention. His compositional skills are highly refined, and balanced, reflecting a mature artist who relies on solid structure and one who is in full command of his skill.
