Ray Caesar’s “A Tainted Virtue” Opening

Artemis_em

CHG Circa is thrilled to be presenting Ray Caesar’s “A Tainted Virtue” on April 19th. 5 of his new works will be making their North American debut.

Opening:
Saturday, April 19th  7-10 pm
Exhibition runs till May 10th

Caesar’s recognizable female figures will grace the gallery with their delicate elegance veiled by a subtle sinister aura. His subjects are aesthetically striking in every way, from their milky skin to their extravagant ensembles. These dreamy representations are even more intriguing as details become more apparent, leading the viewer into a world of dark fantasy.

“A tainted virtue is just a few words that describe the nature of me and my work,” explains Caesar. “I have virtues, morality and kindness but my past was in part a mixture of amazing, wonderful experiences tainted with demoralizing pain and cruelty. I have a disorder called dissociative identity disorder, and although this can be quite challenging, I also see my ability to dissociate as a skill and as a benefit in life. It’s why I communicate in pictures. I live partly in another world of my own creation. This other world is a Paracosm, and my work is a series of windows into the world I have created in my own mind over a lifetime. Trying to live in two worlds is a challenge. Pictures and images allow me to work with that tainted virtue in such a way to turn a kind of ugliness into something beautiful.”

Anita Kunz Solo Show – Italy

Anita-Italy-Blog

Gallery House artist, Anita Kunz and Canadian darling is opening a solo show titled “ The Bestiary” which is scheduled alongside fellow Ray Caesar solo show “The Trouble with Angels” for an opening reception on February 14, 2014 at 7:00 pm for the public reception at the Dorothy Circus Gallery Rome, Italy with both artists in attendance.

Anita Kunz has been widely published for over three decades on an international platform.  Kunz’s paintings have been concerned with political systems, social justice and the human relationship to nature.  Her newer body of work concerns the animal kingdom and and how we relate to and live within it. The Bestiary is a special curated exhibition showcasing a comprehensive exploration of beasts both found in rural and city locations and those fantastical mythical creatures that are only discovered in the land of Kunz.  She believes that since we share an enormous amount of genetic material with other creatures and by comparing and contrasting, we can begin to understand our very nature.

Anita is highly collected in many institutions these include the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Rome; Norman Rockwell Museum and showcased in several art fairs across the UK and more.  She has received the  Order of Canada, her country’s highest civilian honour and was the first Canadian and the first woman to have a show of her work at the Library of Congress in Washington.  She has also recently received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal of Honour.

Ray Caesar Solo Show & Museum

Ray-Caesar-Dorothy-Circus-Gallery

Ray Caesar of Gallery House presents “The Trouble with Angels” alongside Canadian darling Anita Kunz “ The Bestiary”. Both shows are scheduled to open February 14, 2014 at 7:00 pm for the public reception at the Dorothy Circus Gallery Rome, Italy with both artists in attendance.  This will be followed by February 15, 2014 an institutional show at the Palazzo Saluzzo Paesana, Turin Italy featuring Ray Caesar.

Ray Caesar works are known for being a reflection of his subconscious mind and path to self-discovery. The viewer of his work is often left to their own devices to discover a hidden clock, scissor or skeleton within other strange things. The Trouble with Angels continue on this theme, disclosing in a dream like manner the past by reflecting on the passage of time. For example, The Forgotten is a place where our memories live and may lie dormant for years but as Ray expalins “it still exists, even though it is no longer acknowledged…a certain smell, a sight of a grin with decaying teeth, or a note played on a piano can suddenly find that place in each of us, like a key unlocking the door”.

Ray is widely coveted and he is considered the grandfather of digital art having been collected by museums world wide including Bristol museum; board of Trustee selection of the MOMA, Guggenheim and the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

ColinChristianson

We are excited to announce that Sas and Colin Christian have joined the management site–Gallery House.  Together with our artists, we manage their inventory world wide to dealers and museums and we act as the management site for all business related matters.  Both are incredibly accomplished. Sas and Colin have taken large format scale works to another level with each mastering their own medium in their own right.

Colin’s work demonstrates his depth of control like no other artist through the medium of super-smooth fiberglass and silicone which have been seen from the stage of Kanye West (Glow in the Dark Tour); to numerous commercial galleries and institutions that include The Sex Museum – NY, USA (permanent collection); IMAS (International Museum of Art & Science) – Texas USA (permanent collection); Bristol Museum of Art – Bristol, UK; Museum of Modern Art – Momuk, Vienna (permanent collection) and Acquario Romano Museum – Rome, Italy.
