Artist Amy Casey was featured previously on EK back in December 2010. Casey originally hails from Erie, Pennsylvania, USA, but currently is based in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. Are Casey’s new paintings for 2011 an allegory for the current housing market in the US?
Maybe, maybe not. Regardless of how you may read into Casey’s work, there is a great tender balance that is created between the chaotic and seemingly unstable configuration of the homes with Casey’s innocent rendering of her paint that really works together in creating a tension in her pieces of the imminent threat of everything just collapsing.
Man, the US housing market is no joke.
