Casey Matthews


I rarely see watery collage work that appeals to me, but the work of Casey Matthews is simply lovely. It is just so fresh. I feel like I want to sink into her work like I would sink into a luxurious bubblebath and with the size of her work you probably could. She works large, some as large as 60 x 60. It does feel like her entire body gets involved.  Casey says, “I am always noticing patterns in nature and the way inanimate objects and shapes harmonize with each other. I’m inspired by color, how colors interact and react with each other, motion, flow, and organic repetition.” Casey lives in Amelia Island, Florida which I think lends to the rich palette and watery nature of her work. Yum!
