Charles Ray – Ink Line

Ink Line by Charles Ray from 1987 (16 Miles of String)

Don’t miss the amazing exhibition of three rarely seen sculptural installation works by Charles Ray on view now at Matthew Marks Gallery in Chelsea. It’s a mind expanding and totally tripped out experience.

The three pieces on view were conceived in the late 80’s and are all outstanding. Ink Line is the highlight but don’t underestimate the power of Moving Wire and Spinning Spot. If you only know Ray from his figurative sculptural work then you will be very surprised at how different this is and also how fresh these works feel 20 years after they were made.

Jerry Saltz wrote a great review in New York magazine a few weeks ago, it’s definitely worth a read.

    I believe that there is particle based ink, not dye based ink.
