20 november 2021 - 15 januari 2021
‘Winter’ - Art & Bubbles Vrijdag 10 december 17:00 - 21:00 uur

Ray Caesar is de afgelopen jaren uitgegroeid tot een wereldwijd fenomeen. Zijn werk wordt verzameld door de Hearst Family, Riccardo Tisci van Givenchy, Madonna, het Bristol Museum, en zijn werk is geselecteerd door Museum of Modern Art en Guggenheim, New York. 

Ceasar’s fascinerende vervreemdende werelden zijn niet los te zien van zijn Engelse, soms gewelddadige jeugd. Zijn ervaringen tijdens zijn werk - 20 jaar lang - in het Kinderziekenhuis van Toronto ligt ten grondslag aan zijn zienswijze op ‘goed en kwaad’, wat in veel van zijn werken doorschemert. Dit centrale thema, de onschuld en de keerzijde daarvan, speelt in de Winter group show bij Koch x Bos een grote rol. 

Caesar is de pionierskunstenaar in de digitale techniek. Hij maakt gebruik van het 3D animatieprogramma Maya, waarbij modellen gemaakt worden voor animatiefilms en computergames. De uitwerking van de beelden en details gaan verder dan de 2D wereld die wij zien. Een virtuele wereld waar Caesar kan rondlopen, zijn figuren van alle zijden te zien zijn en in laatjes persoonlijke brieven of schatten bewaard liggen, en ook geopend kunnen worden. De werken in de galerie kunnen het beste omschreven worden als foto’s van deze fascinerende en prachtig complexe wereld. Caesar keert terug naar de wortels van één zijn eerdere grote successen.

Tijdens de Winterexpositie zijn ook werken van Ciou (FR), Claire Partington (UK), Zoé Byland (CH), Naoto Hattori en Meryl Donoghue (UK) te zien.

Biografie 

Ray Caesar (53) is geboren en opgegroeid in Zuid-Londen, bij Brixton. Momenteel woont en werkt hij in Toronto, Canada. 
Caesars jeugd en de relatie met zijn familie was van grote invloed op zijn ontwikkeling en artistieke vorming. Ook zijn latere werk bij een kinderziekenhuis in Toronto heeft zijn sporen nagelaten. Fantasie, menselijke wreedheid en vermomming zijn daardoor terugkerende thema's.
Na zijn emigratie naar Canada werkt Ray Caesar 17 jaar in het Kinderziekenhuis van Toronto. Caesar wordt geconfronteerd met kindermisbruik, dierproeven en reconstructieve chirurgie. 

"Ik heb geleerd dat de menselijke hand wreed kan zijn, maar ook dat een hand een hartoperatie kan uitvoeren, een cheque kan uitschrijven voor een nieuwe ziekenhuisvleugel of de traan van een kind kan wegvegen."


Na zijn werk in het ziekenhuis werkt Ray Caesar als digitale animator bij GVFX in Toronto. Hier ontdekt hij de oorsprong van de techniek die hij nu gebruikt om zijn werken te creeëren. Met 3D-techniek bouwt hij digitale modellen met onzichtbare skeletten en anatomische gewrichten. Daarna 'kleedt hij ze aan' met stoffen en texturen. Door zijn eigen huid te scannen en deze in zijn beelden te verwerken, worden zijn schilderijen levensecht. 
In het werk van Ray Caesar zien we invloeden uit de klassieke Europese kunst. Zelf noemt hij Robert Campin, Jan Van Eyk, Boucher, Chardin en Gainsborough. Maar ook moderne beeldmakers als Hitchcock, Koons en David Lynch zijn geestverwanten.

November 20, 2021 - January 15, 2021
'Winter' - Art & Bubbles Friday 10 December 17:00 - 21:00

Ray Caesar has become a worldwide phenomenon in recent years. His work is collected by the Hearst Family, Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy, Madonna, the Bristol Museum, and his work has been selected by Museum of Modern Art and Guggenheim, New York. Caesar's fascinating alienating worlds cannot be separated from his English, sometimes violent childhood. His experiences while working - for 20 years - at the Children's Hospital in Toronto underpin his view of 'good and evil', which is reflected in many of his works.
This central theme, the innocence and its downside, plays a major role in the Winter group show at KochxBos.

Caesar is the pioneering artist in digital technology. He uses the 3D animation program Maya, in which models are made for animation films and computer games. The elaboration of the images and details goes beyond the 2D world that we see. A virtual world where Caesar can walk around, his figures can be seen from all sides and personal letters or treasures are kept in drawers, and can also be opened. The works in the gallery can best be described as photographs of this fascinating and beautifully complex world. Caesar returns to the roots of one of his previous great successes.

The Winter Exhibition will also feature works by Ciou (FR), Claire Partington (UK), Zoé Byland (CH), Naoto Hattori and Meryl Donoghue (UK).

Biography

Ray Caesar (53) was born and raised in South London, near Brixton. He currently lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
Caesar's childhood and relationship with his family greatly influenced his development and artistic formation. His later work at a children's hospital in Toronto has also left its mark. Fantasy, human cruelty and disguise are therefore recurring themes.
After emigrating to Canada, Ray Caesar works at the Children's Hospital in Toronto for 17 years. Caesar faces child abuse, animal testing and reconstructive surgery.

"I've learned that the human hand can be cruel, but also that a hand can perform heart surgery, write a check for a new hospital wing, or wipe a child's tear."


After his job at the hospital, Ray Caesar works as a digital animator at GVFX in Toronto. Here he discovers the origin of the technique he now uses to create his works. Using 3D technology, he builds digital models with invisible skeletons and anatomical joints. Then he 'dresses' them with fabrics and textures. By scanning his own skin and incorporating it into his images, his paintings become lifelike.
In the work of Ray Caesar we see influences from classical European art. He himself mentions Robert Campin, Jan Van Eyk, Boucher, Chardin and Gainsborough. But modern image makers such as Hitchcock, Koons and David Lynch are also kindred spirits.
