Charles Ray’s oeuvre of works, while few in number (around one hundred to date), is extremely rich. It asks the viewer: “what is a sculpture?” The artist offers multiple answers. His work is informed by an in-depth knowledge of the history of sculptural art, from ancient Greek sculptures to the creations of some of his contemporaries, and is distinguished by its immediacy.
