Ray Caesar













Familiar and yet strange, contemporary but at the same time classical, the paintings have contradictory effects on the viewer. The compositions are inspired by famous paintings such as Boudin's impressionist "Woman with a Parasol on the Beach," or Boucher's "Mademoiselle O'Murphy." These revered art works are doctored by Caesar's extraordinarily furtive imagination, transforming classical beauties into beautiful but disturbing technicolor monsters. At first the works seem painted, but on closer inspection the incredible detail and texture of the image are clearly digital. Caesar says "from its creation to its method of printing, I create models in a three dimensional modeling software and cover these models with painted and manipulated photographic textures that wrap around them like a map on a globe. Digital lights and cameras are added with shadows and reflections simulating that of a real world." Except this is definitely not the real world, this is Ray Caesar's world.
