New York-based sculptor Charles LeDray has created a powerful body of work using materials such as cloth, carved human bone, and glazed ceramics, inspired by the traditions of folk art and visionary art. The artist’s virtuosity with materials and his uncanny manipulation of scale is evident in his painstakingly created smaller-than-life formal suits, ties and hats. These seemingly familiar objects evoke memory and personal nostalgia.
