    Introduction
    Ray interjects feelings of unrest into his seemingly quiet Minimalist work, substances such as ink or Pepto-Bismol, which if touched by the viewer, disturb the piece. Ray is also known for his unsually large works, for example, his monochrome replica of a crashed car, his big toy firetruck, and his 8-foot woman mannequin. American architect, New York City.
