« My paintings are a result of quantum meditation."I think it's a valuable skill to know how to incite a conversation. The actual works may exist in a larger dimension, when the answers are not already given. »
American artist Casey McKee was born in 1976 in Phoenix, Arizona. He has been living in Berlin since 2003, where he works as a freelance artist. His works, a conceptual combination of photography and painting, were exhibited and acquired throughout Europe, the United States and East Asia.
Casey Mckee's works are a combination of photography and painting in which the themes vary from series to series. They are often about power structures and systems. With each series, the artist focuses on a single concept that he explores through several works in order to create a sort of narrative. He often employs humor or absurdity in order to not appear didactic. As a result, the viewer is free to draw his own conclusions.Lire la suite
Hybrid of photography and paintings
Casey Mckee begins by planning for months and realizing his photographs. These are then printed on a canvas in black and white. Furthermore, the artist doesn't just apply oil paint to the photo, but also works them into the picture while painting. Elements are added, removed and changed, so that the canvas displays sections that are sometimes picturesque, sometimes photographic.
