San Francisco-based artist Casey Gray will present a new series of paintings for his first show at Park Life Gallery.

 

The show titled Wave Pool, will feature Gray’s “wavy” paintings that depict universal symbols of everyday life in a wavy or rippled motif that communicates a feeling of uncertainty or mistrust; a general cynicism related to the current changing socio-economic climate and related identity crisis of San Francisco. The symbols themselves are generally lighthearted and optimistic, some having humorous meanings or connotations. The distortion of these symbols inject a level of cynicism and lack of control into their emoji-like imagery.

 

Casey’s more formally composed still-life and cabinet paintings also gain inspiration from his everyday experience. Digitally sourced objects are chosen and composed in a way to suggest a non-linear narrative that is both real and imagined. The artist is interested in using images without context or history and injecting new importance into them by their association with and relation to other images. The works are an attempt at communicating the artist’s complex relationship to the world around him, and are an exploration into the overlap of virtual and actual reality.

 

All works are spray painted acrylic on wood panel.
