Amy Casey and the nervous state of world affairs

Under - Art, Illustration, Inspiration
Keeping it together

Keeping it together

Urban landscape cluttered with debris, bunched up houses that are connected with cables and electric wires, and resting on uncertainty. Amy Casey paints the nervous state of affairs the world seems to be in.

Inspired by natural and unnatural disasters, personal fiascos and the never-ending stream of bad news coming in from the media, the world inside my paintings has been turned (sometimes literally) upside down. The ground has crumbled underneath them and the sky is falling. In the wake of this, my created world bands together to come up with coping plans. This lets me explore ideas of anxiety and vulnerability, community, and the illusions of safety. I’m fascinated by the resilience of life. Every disaster is followed by rebirth, where we try to cobble together a plan b. out of what remains. My paintings celebrate this fascination and my love of the urban landscape and its creatures.
