Charles Ray is a Los Angeles-based American sculptor known for his strange and enigmatic sculptures that draw the viewer's perceptual judgments into questions in jarring and unexpected ways. 

Ray's work is difficult to classify. Style materials subject presence and scale are all variable. What is consistent is as on critic put it "In all his seamlessly executed objects Ray fixates on how and why things happen to say nothing of wondering what really does happen in the field of vision and how such events might be remade as art." This and the level of art historical awareness behind his works has led many critics to call Ray a sculptor's sculptor.
