“The past has to be my first top inspiration… I keep struggling to make myself more aware of my own memory and what I think of as a collective memory of all culture.” (Ray Caesar)
This summer at Gallery House we are featuring a unique glimpse into the haunted and otherworldly archives of master digital painter Ray Caesar. For the first time, his most obscure, rarest or last editions are brought together in one space for a brief summer showing.
Ray Caesar’s digital paintings exist in a world unto themselves, a place that is not on any map or mentioned in any guidebook. Ornate, architectural and sinister, they echo the grandeur of Reynolds and Gainsborough and the gothic intricacies of Van Eyck, but have a dreamy, dark otherworld quality that is all his own. Considered the godfather of digital painting, Caesar’s work invites one into a baroque world both familiar and yet unsettling, “…a deep world of daydreams and paracosms.”
Gallery House Hours till Aug 20, 2016 inclusive is Thurs, Fri & Sat 11:00 – 4:00 pm
