Ray Caesar New Works “Tainted”
Toronto: Jan 28 – Feb 22, 2017 – Gallery House is pleased to announce Ray Caesars’ solo exhibition “Tainted” at Gallery House, Toronto Canada. Gallery hours (as of Feb 2, 2017) are: Thurs – Sat 11:00 – 4:00 pm.
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 or Rococo artists Watteau and Boucher, but have a dreamy, dark, otherworldly quality that feel both sensual and sinister.
Caesar’s works in turn are creations from his life memories and events. This series of works from “Tainted” return with a vivid sense of hues of blues, the octopus and tentacles reappear reminiscent of the work ‘Metatron’. The seductive nature of his girls return as does his fascination of beauty instruments used in girls primping themselves and the theme of the sea—memories of time spent in Bristol and Cornwall. For Caesar the ocean or the sea represents the unconscious mind – how our “unconscious is more truthful and honest and tainted than we think…deep desires and secrets we hide even from ourselves and the nature of art to communicate hidden aspects of self”. Once again, Ray’s visual diaries captivate us and repel us, yet we always ache for more. Caesar’s own life memories and events will also be available on canvas as one of a kind varnished pieces.
Work featured include:
The Launderette: “My Mother was a night owl and would often do laundry in the middle of the night. The basement of the apartment building I lived in, with its laundry room, lockers, furnace rooms and vast garage, became a haunting strange place for me … especially late at night as I often wandered there like a prowling cat when everyone else was asleep. I still dream I am sitting in that laundry room as that child in the 1960s. I am also inspired by Leviticus and the nature of cleanliness as a way of life, although for me, the Bible is just a set of stories and a kind of spoken history of our species in much the same way my work is a spoken story of my own life with all its memory both real and mystical.”
In One Ear and Out The Other: “It’s about listening to the subconscious part of our mind where reason, meaning and self-absorption can overwhelm intuition and feeling. It’s about how narcissists create a vacuum in their own world. My father is referenced in this piece as a narcissist, and to some degree so is the world of Trumpian politics. The girl is his muse but he can’t hear her because he is too self-absorbed. The work is drawing a parallel from a dialogue of our personal subconscious to the global or collective subconscious of our species. The Dog/wolf is a repetitive archetype that is part of my primal mind. It is also the way I saw my family — as a pack of wolves. My beginnings in life seemed like being part of a strangely cultured pack of beasts that could turn violent and kill in a split second. That more than anything formed who I am today.
The Hive: “It’s about community; the nature of how we all live together and how that society is ordered. As someone who has a dissociative identity disorder I often feel part of a community of separate parts like a hive of buzzing bees… individual but with a common purpose.”
Gallery House Hours from Feb 2 – 25, 2017 inclusive is Thurs, Fri & Sat 11:00 – 4:00 pm
