Ray Caesar: A Gentle Kind of Cruelty
Toronto based artist Ray Caesar‘s exhibition “A Gentle Kind of Cruelty” is on now at Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York.
“Caesar works in Maya (a 3D modeling software used for digital animation effects in film and game industries), using it to create his figures as well as the virtual realms in which they exist. Through the program, he builds digital models with invisible skeletons and anatomical joints that can be bent and manipulated to assume any pose. He wraps the models in rich textures, adding hair, skin, eyelashes and fingernails. Then places them in digitally lit, impeccably detailed 3D environments built with architectural layers, windows, wallpapers, curtains and furnishings. Caesar’s meticulous process incorporates elements of drawing, painting, collage and sculpture, working countless hours to achieve every remarkably intricate tableau.”
“A Gentle Kind of Cruelty” runs through February 19, 2011. For more information, visit Jonathan Levine Gallery, or visit Caesar’s website RayCaesar.com.
