Casey Matthews creates rich paintings with multi-media surfaces that are both visually intruguing and full of energy. They incorporate expressive color, fluid movement, and strong elements of design. Her work combines emotional content, observation, technique, exploration, and reinvention. She has developed a series of gestures and marks that make up a unique visual language that attempts to achieve balance and beauty. From a distance, her works imparts a statement of color, composition, and tone; view closely, they suggest complex narratives composed of many hues and textures.
“My creativity begins with a constant state of awareness and appreciation for everything around me. I am always noticing patterns in nature and the way inanimate objects and shapes harmonize with each other. I’m inspired by color, how colors interact and react with each other, motion, flow, and organic repetition. My work is intuitive and process driven. I enjoy the drips and splatters – and the journey they inspire.”
