A comprehensive monograph on recent works of sculpture

Charles Ray (* 1953 in Chicago) is among the most outstanding sculptors of the present. Like Jeff Koons and Katharina Fritsch, his work explores a new ap­proach to sculptural figuration. One example is the white-painted steel sculpture Boy with Frog (2009), which attracted much attention at the Punta della Dogana in Venice, where it was displayed until re­cently. The oversized figure of a nude boy, who is en­gaging with the animal world in a playful, if cruel manner, recalls the idealization of classical sculpture, despite its naturalism. Superbly executed, the work has a timeless quality, and its enormous weight is not apparent. Many people who see it do not realize that it is a contemporary work of art. This catalogue pro­vides an overview of the major sculptures Ray has created since 1997, including several previously un­published works.
