Ray Caesar, Gottfried Helnwien, Catherine Howe and Anita Kunz are covered in France with 7 images of the upcoming show here:
English translation reads: Ray Caesar does not show his face and distorts reality when talking about his life. On its website, says the London artist born dog and human. “The unfortunate fact was soon accepted in my family and was never mentioned again in the presence of polite company,” writes as laughing at anyone trying to find out something about it. Female figures pale eyes and sharp look tiny, distant and sometimes diabolical, star in his works.
A recent exhibition brings together the work of Caesar (1958), Canada’s Anita Kunz (1956), the Austrian Gottfried Helnwein (1948) and American Catherine Howe, who does not reveal his age. They share the artistic maturity, all have since the early eighties to develop their career and attained the language that provide the experience and effort.
The Gallery House in Toronto (Canada), specialized in exposing the work of veteran artists, presents the work of four in the group exhibition Miles To Go Before I Sleep (Lots to go before I sleep). With the title of the exhibition organizers refers to a poem by Robert Frost-winning American writer (1874-1963), who, like the artists in the exhibition “refers to the surface of beauty” and draws the viewer into a dark complemented “the refusal to surrender.”
