Urbanization or The End of The World

12 Oct 2012

Amy Casey comprises traits of surrealism, magic realism, psychedelic, contemporary and abstract arts.

Amy Casey, a painter and Cleveland native, paints delicate networks of roped and towering tangled, rickety cityscapes, that show the chaos of modern urbanized world or the worldwide collapse. Her art comprises traits of  surrealism, neo-surrealism, visionary art, magic realism, fantastic art, psychedelic art, experimental art, contemporary and abstract arts.

With her works she describes and criticizes the the development of modern urban model, as well as  today’s society’s  increasing insecure feelings, as if everything could fall down at any moment; Amy taps into this with a beautiful array of work. She has no problem depicting what happens after the collapse of the world, either.

Amy Casey’s worlds are stilted, literally, and their fragility lends an appeal. Despite the obvious risk of catastrophe at any moment, her homes seem solid, and not at all dark.
Her worlds have a tendency to come crashing down, but this action is counterbalanced by tranquil scenes before any devastation.

A student at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Amy Casey graduated in 1999 and has found herself back in her hometown working for galleries and perfecting her craft.
