On technical and formal levels, Ray has been redefining the possibilities of contemporary sculptural practice since the early 1980s. Ray’s recent, pioneering use of solid, machined aluminum and stainless steel is entirely new to the history of art.

“Isa Genzken’s totemic sculptures, colourful mirrored panels and lacquered paintings articulate the artist’s mysterious method. Harvesting, fusing and re-constructing references from myriad sources, she takes an anything-goes approach to the materials she uses to convey multiple meanings in unexpected ways.”
