New Works by Casey Gray Debuts TonightJuxtapoz // Saturday, 10 Jul 2010
ILL Romantic consists of multilayered, interconnected works that draw from a symbolic system of meaning and associations pertaining to the turmoil of the human heart.
Casey imagery is both autobiographical and universal, with much of it being drawn from his own photography as well as various media sources. The end results are brightly colored spectacles that tap into collective social consciousness while simultaneously being deeply personal.
ILL Romantic explores the dynamics of competing ideologies in a discussion of suburban romantic fantasy as a form of escapism. It stems from meditations on a myriad of concerns relating to vulnerability, attraction, repulsion, exploitation and the duality of good and evil.
Casey will earn a Master of Fine Arts in Painting from the San Francisco Art Institute in May of 2010. His works have been featured in cities across the United States including San Diego, San Francisco and the 2009 Aqua Art Fair in Miami.
