Two images I took at the now closed Charles Ray: Sculpture, 1997–2014 continue to attract my attention, even now, five months after taking them. Ray’s “Sleeping Woman” (2012) is a startling achievement, at once awe-inspiring and intimate.
The exposed waistband of her briefs. That detail that slays me.
The title of today’s post comes from a passage in Will Self’s 2013 interview with Ray.
