THINKERS, TRICKSTERS, HEROES, HEROINES AND SORCERERS . . . all can be found in the work of nationally known sculptor Ray Kobald. In his sculptures, there are mysteries, legends, stories.

To view Kobald's work is an invitation to explore a mystery. Some figures hide behind masks. Some look up under head coverings. All suggest a story. As writer, Elizabeth Johnston tells us, their attention is reverently engaged in a vastness we cannot see. He creates standing figures that look off into distance and time, looking past the viewer into something else. Their attention is reverently and totally engaged by a vastness we cannot see. The sense of vast space, and their reverence within it, speaks to us.
Elizabeth Johnston, Arts Beat magazine.
