Casey Matthews creates rich paintings with multi-media surfaces that are both visually intriguing and full of energy. Expressive colors, fluid movement, and strong elements of design combined with Casey's harnessing of emotional content, observation, personal technique, fearless exploration, and constant reinvention have allowed her to create a series of gestures and marks that make up her own unique visual language. From a distance, Casey's works impose a singular statement of color, composition and tone; viewed closely, they suggest a complex narrative that is multi-hued and textured.
“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.”
Casey attended Texas Christian University and received her BFA in Painting & Art History from The University of Alabama. She lives and works on Amelia Island, Florida.
