i’m jealous of amy casey

I’ll be honest, American artist Amy Casey has me a little worried. Does she know something we don’t!? She’s been having a recurring dream for the past eight years about the world coming to an end… which has obviously influenced her work. The paintings above are in chronological order from 2006 ~ 2010. Are you picking up on a theme? I have to say though, it does make me feel a bit better to see that the 2010 painting includes a safety net. That’s gotta be a good sign… right?!

{Thanks Brian!}

    I stumbled across Amy some time ago, but had forgotten to take note of her name. Thanks so much for reintroducing her to me! Sensational work.

    I was able to view Amy Casey’s work a couple of weeks ago here in Rochester, NY. She is in a group show (State of the City 2010) at Rochester Contemporary Art Center. I love her work. Hard to believe it looks even better in person!
