My wife and I were in Chicago last week. During our time there we looked at a lot of art. The very best stuff we saw was a show of paintings by Amy Casey at the Zg gallery. Her work isn't abstract, and it isn't geometric, but I love it just the same. If you want a taste, here's a great little video from a few years ago with lots of images. It's part of a series of art-related videos produced by KQED in San Francisco, and there are dozens more. I think I'll be checking them out as I find time.
I noticed a big stack of triangular mailing tubes at work, and it inspired this series of paintings.
For this one I changed the colors (obviously) and loosened it up a bit.
A change of colors again, and smaller triangles.
These are all acrylic on canvas. Canvas pads, specifically. I like canvas pads for working out ideas. They're pretty cheap and come in a variety of sizes. I'm not really sure what they're made of. They seem to be canvas that's impregnated with some kind of plastic. The canvas gives them 'tooth,' and the plastic makes them durable. I wrote to the manufacturer because I wondered how long I could expect them to last. I got a reply but it was pretty ambiguous. Hopefully they won't disintegrate anytime soon.
I'm a self-taught artist based in Louisville, Kentucky. Unless otherwise noted, the art posted here is mine.
