The exhibit of Charles LeDray’s in the exhibit workworkworkworkwork made me talk in tiny weird nioses.

The title of this exhibit is also the title of his 1991 piece, "nearly six hundred precisely fashioned miniature objects created by the artist were layed out on a sidewalk in the center of New York’s Astor Place."

Charles Ledray (b. 1960), workworkworkworkwork, 1991 (detail). 588 objects: Fabric, thread, cotton batting, yarn, embroidery floss, nylon cord, carpet, leather, wood, metal, foil, metal chain, wire, nails, porcelain, pumice, beads, buttons, cardboard, corrugated cardboard, paper, magic marker, paint, approximately 45 feet long x 10 in x 2in. (13.7 m x 25.4 cm x 5 cm). Private Collection, Houston, TX
This post will segue into the week-theme of sidewalk sales!
