Opening Photos: Ray Caesar @ Corey Helford Gallery

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, 25 Oct 2011

Toronto-based Ray Caesar opened a new solo show, A Dangerous Inclination, at Corey Helford Gallery this past weekend. Amongst the opening night photos, there is an incredible cake that was made inspired by Ray Caesar's work that is worth a look.

“A Dangerous Inclination” continues on this theme, disclosing a more personal side to his narratives than before. For example, his new painting “Iron Shoes” features a child wearing a fluffy, white petticoat and fiery feet, which deals with Caesar’s traumatic childhood memories and his experiences working in a children’s hospital. Whereas “La Chasse”—a three-dimensional fête galante inspired by Antoine Watteau—is about hunting back innocence that has been taken from childhood. Other works, such as “Siren” and “Titania” serve as metaphors for self-exploration and escape, respectively.
