CHARLES RAY, SLEEPING WOMAN, 2012 COPYRIGHT CHARLES RAY, COURTESY MATTHEW MARKS GALLERY

A Midwest transplant to LA, Charles Ray is to sculpture what David Lynch is to film. He sees behind the world of appearances into the soul of phenomena, transforming everyday life into a strange, seductive but scary world. Sleeping Woman, a figure 10% larger than life-size, was computer-carved from a block of steel.
