Ray Caesar

An anomaly in the art world, Gallery House Canada eschews the traditional monthly exhibition format and instead opts to represent a stable of accomplished artists and host one to two openings per year. Titled “Truth, Light & Matter” the latest show includes new work from Ray Caesar, Joe Fenton, Gottfried Helnwein, Stephen Ibbott, Anita Kunz and Brian Richer.

Using digital media, Ray Caesar has created a soft world with a porcelain-like perfection that he contrasts with grotesque imagery. Adding to the power of his juxtapositions, this show will include some of his largest work to date. The hyper-realistic painting of Gottfried Helnwein will be shown for the first time ever in Canada as well as Joe Fenton’s drawings that resemble archaeoligical findings from a bizaare alternate reality or far-off planet. The show opens Thursday, October 3, at Gallery House Canada in Toronto and runs through November 23 with gallery hours Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 12-5.
