Art by Rosamond Casey

Powers of Ten, 13″ x 33″ acrylic on glass, 1993 from Regions of Will

 

“Back in the 90’s I fabricated a painting tool, somewhat like a squeegee, that could produce an image that appeared three-dimensional. Uprising and Powers of Ten are two paintings from that series. As more narrative themes emerged in my work, this tool did its part off in the corners, no longer front and center.

The photo/paintings, Initiation and Chinese Whispers, [below] are from my recent series Men in Suits, A Day on the Hill, a visual query that tracks such men through the streets and marble halls of Capitol Hill… After collecting my snapshots, I assembled them in large photo/paintings of Ten Stations that begin with Initiation, and mark the stages of passage through the light and shadow of their power.”
