ARTIST OF THE WEEK: Kathy Casey

Kathy Casey is a painter living and working in South Carolina. She works in mixed media including acrylics, charcoal, crayon and collage on hand textured canvas or board. Kathy’s non-objective paintings evoke the spirit of a natural evolution that results from the passage of time. Each is about flux – the ever changing nature of life. Each piece serves as a metaphor for life: birth and death, creation and decay, growth and transformation. Each arrangement is as much about destruction as construction. Surface quality and texture are often inspired by the corrosion and dissipation that the artist sees in the landscape and old buildings ...cracked stucco, weathered wood, the patina of rusting iron. Random words are often found within each piece from the collaged found papers that often serve to add personal meaning to the works. Casey searches for beauty in the seemingly imperfect, unearthing and embracing subtle details that beacon the viewer to linger and look more closely.
Kathy is represented by City Art Gallery in Columbia, SC and Ellis-Nicholson Gallery in Charleston, SC.

I am intrigued by the work and the artist's statement. When I click on the image I get a message "Page not found. Sorry, the page you were looking for in the blog TWITTER ART SHOW does not exist."

Linda,
Let me take a look at this. I am not sure if it is a problem with the link or the website. The first one I can fix. The second possibility is out of my hands.
Thanks for letting me know about this issue.
:-)

Linda,
The artist had given me the link without the http://. I fixed that. It works now. Thanks again!
