Thanks to Dragobug, I recently discovered a wonderful Facebook page on The Macabre and the Beautifully Grotesque. This Facebook group pulls together wonderful pictures and spreads them out unto the world. They link back to or identify the artist of these beautiful works, which I really appreciate. Their Ray Caesar album is quite fantastic. I’m a little in love. The Healing Light, The Angel of Innocent Things, and Night Call are my favorite pieces which shows that Ray Caesar’s current work is a little less centered on children, but still darkly whimsical in nature.
Ray Caesar’s art was influenced by his job at a children’s hospital. He writes:
I believe that you must have both sunlight and moonlight to see the truth.
