Ray Caesar’s painterly digital prints, first featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 31, combine elements that are as grotesque as they are beautiful. He looks to his memories, particularly his own difficult childhood, to see beyond the challenges of reality and find the calm and beauty within. For his upcoming exhibition at Gallery House in Toronto, “Pretty Little Predators”, Caesar illustrates the power of memories- and their impact on our past, present and future lives. Dressed in Rococo and pre-French Revolution era attire, his subjects have a historical quality about them. Caesar sees the past as an important part of his personal life, and an equally important part of his life as an artist.
