Here's a couple new images from the upcoming Ray Caesar show. This is his first Los Angeles solo and if you haven't seen Ray's work in person, please come by and check them out. They are absolutely stunning!
From the press release: Caesar’s first exhibition with Corey Helford features 30 pieces, unveiling Caesar’s cathartic process of making art. “I look inside myself and see very difficult and wonderful memories I have forgotten; things I tucked away in a secret box 45 years ago,” Caesar explains. “I am now sitting by that box and opening up what’s inside. [This exhibition] communicates what I am finding.”
Caesar is known for his elegant and haunting works, which are a reflection of his subconscious mind and path to self-discovery. “I take difficult memories and hidden emotions and turn them into something that at first glance seems pretty, then you notice something a little disturbing or an ingredient that you wonder why it might be there,” Caesar explains. “A little tainted, a little melancholy, a little funny, a little sad and a little taboo… I mix this with clocks and scissors and irons and knives and silk dresses and strange things coming out from under them.”
