As huge admirers of Ray Caesar's beautiful yet haunting imagery, we were excited to learn of the digital genius' upcoming solo show on October 22nd at Corey Helford Gallery. A Dangerous Inclination delves deeper into Caesar's psyche to reveal the difficult and wonderful childhood memories the artist has "tucked away" 45 years ago. Caesar's works 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 atfirst 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 hiding strange things underneath.”
Save the date: A Dangerous Inclination opens Saturday, October 22nd 7-10pm at CHG
