    “LeDray’s work tends to produce a sense of wonder that can border on disorientation. The first sign of this, perhaps, is the loss of certainty that what we are looking at is actually small. Are they really small, or just much farther away than we had first thought? Could it be, instead, that we ourselves are actually very large? Like Gulliver, we may feel that we have traveled to a remote part of the world, somewhere quite familiar yet disturbingly strange.” (Russell Ferguson, quoted in C. Gould, ed., Charles LeDray, Sculpture 1989-2002, Philadelphia, 2002, p. 19)
