Event Photos: Ray Caesar & Adam Wallcavage

Jonathan LeVine Gallery opened two incredible shows this past weekend with Ray Caesar in the main gallery and Adam Wallcavage in the project room.

In the main gallery was Ray Caesar’s, In The Garden of Moonlight which perfectly blended abnormal and bizarre styles of past present and future. The digital childlike innocence or lack thereof, created a dark contrast that can only be that of Ray Caesar. I was also impressed with Ray’s use of negative space this round, which is something I have not seen from him in the past.

In the project room Les Trésors de la Tanière de Neptune, by Adam Wallcavage was a magical fairy tale of adventure found in his trademark Octopus Chandeliers. The room was done up with tricked out wallpaper which staged a nice backdrop for these masterpieces. Both shows nicely compliment each other and are worth checking out.
