Damien A Roman Fine Art is pleased announce our participation in SCOPE New York 2016. The 16th edition of SCOPE New York returns to its location one block from the Armory Show Piers at Metropolitan West Pavilion located at 639 W 46th St. New York, NY 10036.
In addition to its traditional booth offerings, SCOPE New York will feature its critically acclaimed, open-plan exhibition design. SCOPE New York maintains a decidedly thoughtful, polished presentation, rather than an array of small booths. Exhibiting galleries flow beautifully into one another, creating curatorial narratives that encompass the entire show.
Participating artists in this year's edition include: Troy Brooks, Ray Caesar, Tim Conlon, EVOL, AJ Fosik, Gentleman's Game, Grant Haffner, Elektra KB & Swoon.
We are located at booth A5 on the main floor. Email us for Artist and artwork info, VIP access to the fair and day passes.
Ray Caesar, An Eclectix Artist Interview
Ray Caesar creates gorgeously haunting combinations of the rococo, the romantic and contemporary surreal imagery, with bits of more modern fashions and sexual fetish. His artistic influences reference the French rococo, variations on the theme of the fête champêtre (which featured figures in ball dress or masquerade costumes disporting themselves amorously in parkland settings), Antoine Watteau, François Boucher, Dali and the Dutch painters.
Ray worked for years in the art & photography department of the Hospital For Sick Children in Toronto, documenting disturbing cases of child abuse, surgical reconstruction, psychology and animal research. Caesar’s experiences at the hospital continue to influence and shape his art. He works digitally, using 3D modeling software called Maya, mastered while working in animation for the television and film industries.
Things change and summer years come to an end. My change occurred one night when my Mother visited me, which was slightly unusual because she had passed away some months before, a victim to the cigarette habit she could never quite lick. Facing a wall and slowly turning I saw the right side of her face ablaze in light, her hand trying to cover the light as if she were apologetic for having it seep through. Words were said about following rabbits down holes and I was shown galleries of work which were to be my own. My Mother was not the first visitation I have had and it seems she will not be the last.
