Ray Caesar’s paintings are crafted with such acute awareness of light, you would think he was a art scholar in the time of the old masters. Mix this with a twisted subject matter and you get these hauntingly beautiful works of art.
Caesar’s sense of humor can been sensed in this statement about himself …
“I was born in London, England on October 26, 1958, the youngest of four and much to my parent’s surprise, I was born a dog. This unfortunate turn of events was soon accepted within my family and was never again mentioned in the presence of polite company.”
He also states…
“I have worked in many fields over the years, attended obedience classes and art colleges, jobs designing horrible buildings in architectural studios, medical art facilities, digital service bureaus, suspicious casino computer game companies, eventually working at computer modeling, digital animation and visual effects for television and film. Some award nominations have been attained and I have been driven in long black liquor filled limousines and walked on hind legs down red carpets in Pasadena while wearing strange smelling rented tuxedos.”
From Such Foulness of Root Does Sweetness Grow
