Some of Caesar’s artistic inspiration came from working for 17 years in the Art and Photography Department of The Hospital For Sick Children in Toronto. Ray documented things such as child abuse, surgical reconstruction, psychology and animal research. The artist explains, ”I often awake in the middle of the night and realize I have been wondering the hallways and corridors of the giant hospital. It is clear to me that this is the birthplace of all my imagery”.
His images are classical, yet at the same time very contemporary. His figures are otherworldly – a beautiful fusion of sci-fi fantasy, lush landscapes, and Victorian sensibilities. Born in London, England on October 26 1958, Caesar currently lives in Toronto, Canada.
