Brian Richer & Stephen Ibbott (Double Solo Show)

Gallery House is proud to announce “Calcium Oxide” new works by Brian Richer and
Stephen Ibbott “The One & Only” rare works.

Opening Reception:
Thursday June 5, 7:00-10:00 pm with both artists in attendance
Exhibition runs from June 5 – 28, 2014.

“Calcium Oxide” is a series created by Brian Richer which, will be a brand new body of work. This will encompass the use of traditional methods of stone carving to modern objects created in limestone and other materials.

A central aspect of Richer’s practice is testing the limits of materials, both in terms of their aesthetic and structural properties, as well as their ability to represent and make reference. Richer is also interested in the intersection between art and technology. Richer’s understanding of both art history and contemporary art, combined with his appreciation of technology, allow him to create objects which elude immediate categorization. Richer’s work blurs the line between the practicality of engineering on one hand, and the indulgence of fine art on the other.

Ibbott is an internationally acclaimed painter whose artistic inclination can be traced back to his great-great-great uncle Robert Harris, who famously painted “The Fathers of Confederation” for the Parliament building.  Ibbott has shown in blue chip galleries and art fairs across the USA, Canada and the UK.

Ibbott’s “Love in Digital Time” series developed out of his earlier exploration of the digitally informed line and shape.  Painted on aluminum and using a specially developed stenciling method, these artworks have a unique and luminous presence.  The themes in the series look at the resilience of love in our culture, despite the enormous changes being brought on by the digital revolution.

Both Brian Richer and Stephen Ibbott’s work is also included in Gallery House Volume 01, you can view a full preview of the 118 page catalogue here.

Ray Caesar’s “A Tainted Virtue” Opening


Gallery House artist Ray Caesar presents a double solo show at the CHG Circa Gallery titled “A Tainted Virtue” opening on April 19th. Five of his new works will be making their North American debut including a newly released edition.

Saturday, April 19th  7-10 pm
Exhibition runs till May 10th

Caesar’s recognizable female figures will grace the gallery with their delicate elegance veiled by a subtle sinister aura. His subjects are aesthetically striking in every way, from their milky skin to their extravagant ensembles. These dreamy representations are even more intriguing as details become more apparent, leading the viewer into a world of dark fantasy.

“A tainted virtue is just a few words that describe the nature of me and my work,” explains Caesar. “I have virtues, morality and kindness but my past was in part a mixture of amazing, wonderful experiences tainted with demoralizing pain and cruelty. I have a disorder called dissociative identity disorder, and although this can be quite challenging, I also see my ability to dissociate as a skill and as a benefit in life. It’s why I communicate in pictures. I live partly in another world of my own creation. This other world is a Paracosm, and my work is a series of windows into the world I have created in my own mind over a lifetime. Trying to live in two worlds is a challenge. Pictures and images allow me to work with that tainted virtue in such a way to turn a kind of ugliness into something beautiful.”

Ray Caesar Solo Show & Museum


Ray Caesar of Gallery House presents “The Trouble with Angels” alongside Canadian darling Anita Kunz “ The Bestiary”. Both shows are scheduled to open February 14, 2014 at 7:00 pm for the public reception at the Dorothy Circus Gallery Rome, Italy with both artists in attendance.  This will be followed by February 15, 2014 an institutional show at the Palazzo Saluzzo Paesana, Turin Italy featuring Ray Caesar.

Ray Caesar works are known for being a reflection of his subconscious mind and path to self-discovery. The viewer of his work is often left to their own devices to discover a hidden clock, scissor or skeleton within other strange things. The Trouble with Angels continue on this theme, disclosing in a dream like manner the past by reflecting on the passage of time. For example, The Forgotten is a place where our memories live and may lie dormant for years but as Ray expalins “it still exists, even though it is no longer acknowledged…a certain smell, a sight of a grin with decaying teeth, or a note played on a piano can suddenly find that place in each of us, like a key unlocking the door”.

Ray is widely coveted and he is considered the grandfather of digital art having been collected by museums world wide including Bristol museum; board of Trustee selection of the MOMA, Guggenheim and the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
