About Casey

My work illustrates a fantastic landscape. It represents nature’s subtle way of dealing with the peculiar aspects in its relationship with mankind. A giant glow-in-the-dark heart, or a pile of precious gems tells us that we are loved, just as blood squirting from an oak tree trunk says, all is not well. I am inspired by my conversation with the landscape, I imagine long monologues when pine forests make me laugh and mountains test my patience.

My paintings are created with a photochemical process known as cyanotype. The cyanotype is a civil war era process that when exposed to sunlight and developed gives a vibrant blue image. I paint with this light sensitive medium directly on paper or canvas. With everyday items such as baking soda, bleach and peroxide I am able to achieve a range of colors and textures thru controlled chemical reactions. I repeat this process adding many layers until the image is fully realized, often finishing with watercolor painting or a collage element.

"I feel that you are taking the cyanotype process a great deal further than it was ever intended. You have a great deal of patience and I think that your finished products need no further explaination. Thank you for these interesting pieces."

"These are wonderful. Designs are bold and eye catching. Lovely!"

"I really love the them both. The first on has a beautiful warm feeling in it. I thought the rainbow should have been less perfect. The second picture is lovely."
