Opening Photos: Casey Weldon's "Sentimental Deprivation" @ Thinkspace Gallery
Juxtapoz headed out to the opening of Casey Weldon's newest show at Thinkspace Gallery, works that combine "humor, nostalgia, and the absurd to stage open-ended narratives ,and lush imaginary views, that border on the hyperchromatic edges of psychedelia."
From optically disorienting four-eyed kittens and seemingly phosphorescent girls to giant disproportionately scaled Chihuahuas in desert canyon landscapes, nothing is too weirdly outré or unimaginable for Weldon’s visual fictions. Unrestricted by the prohibitive constraints of probability, Weldon’s imagination playfully borrows imagery and kitsch from popular culture – past and present – and recombines its familiar fragments into beautifully strange reconstitutions.
