Welcome to the latest art to emerge from the contemporary visionaries as seen through the eyes of Platinum Cheese. 

Ray Caesar and Beau Stanton @ CHG Circa

Currently on view at CHG Circa is a collaborative exhibition from Ray Caesar and Beau Stanton. Since the opening of the show on April 19th, their work has had an amazing viewer turn out. This highly successful pairing embraces the idea of two incredible artists creating a powerful collection without standing in each other's way. Ray Caesar's "A Tainted Virtue", revolves around delicate female figures that pack a punch with their sultry poise. Their uneasy presence reveals that they are merely veiled with fragility and instead, are possessed with a dark side. Caesar describes this body of work, including 5 new pieces, as "a few words describing [him] and [his] work", a "mixture of amazing, wonderful experiences tainted with demoralizing pain and cruelty." Beau Stanton's "Cartography of the Machine", presents a fusion of 19th century historical references and modern compositions. The artist's LA solo debut, captures his intense attention to detail through textured industrial renditions. A vibrant palette and controlled use of pattern give each piece the illusion of depth. Stanton describes his work as "visual dissections provid[ing] unique perspectives while presenting the mechanical nature of [his] imagery.”

"A Tainted Virtue" and "Cartography of the Machine" are on view through May 10th. Be sure to visit CHG Circa to catch the works in person. Meanwhile, enjoy some images of the opening night courtesy of the gallery.
