A Naked Creepy Guy, in Stainless Steel
Charles Ray is good at immortalizing vulnerability, like when he sculpted his bespectacled, awkward self staring up at a towering woman or when he hired a Japanese craftsman to carve a life-size replica of a fallen, rotting hinoki tree. In his just-opened show at Matthew Marks, a naked, bearded man stares across at a woman sleeping on a bench, using her purse as a pillow. It's all cast in stainless steel, so its creepiness feels permanent. 1062 N. Orange Grove Ave.; through June 23. (323) 654-1830, matthewmarks.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: April 28. Continues through June 23, 2012
