Illustrations by Ray Caesar
Digital illustrations of glamorous and fantastic figures inspired by the paintings of Jean-Antoine Watteau. The images are created using 3D modeling software and are the artist's manifestations of unsettling childhood memories.
I take difficult memories and hidden emotions and turn them into something that at first glance seems pretty, then you notice something a little disturbing or an ingredient that you wonder why it might be there. A little tainted, a little melancholy, a little funny, a little sad and a little taboo… I mix this with clocks and scissors and irons and knives and silk dresses hiding strange things underneath.
