The English born artist Ray Caesar has grown explosively into a phenomenon. Fantasy, human cruelty and disguise are recurring themes, influenced by his youth. His unique imaginativeness intriguing us, creating dark, surreal, images with a touch of romance. Thrilling, fairy like work, it is heart wrenching.
Using 3D technology, he builds digital models with invisible skeletons and anatomical joints. He then 'dresses them' with materials and textures. By scanning and processing his own skin in his images, his paintings are in a narrow way 'real'. Caesar's craft betrays complete control over clothes, positions and lighting of the figures and surroundings. And that makes him perhaps the director in his own life never can be.
After his spectacular solo shows in L.A, New York and Manchester, Ray ended the year in Amsterdam where he is still showing at his Dutch ‘discoverers’ KochxBos Gallery.
'Sinnocence' runs until January 19.
