STANLEY CASSELMAN

STANLEY CASSELMAN EXHIBITION

SPRING 2018

Stanley Casselman was born 1963 in Phoenix, Arizona, and lives and works in New York City. Casselman has had tremendous recent success at auction, consistently selling above the high estimate. His work reflects the importance of light and the tension that arises through the fusion of geometric lines with organic shapes, and the exploration of contrast like in his Noise series, where the gestural expression becomes the protagonist making visible the repetition of the texture. In his Luminor series, the fusion of the geometric lines with the repetition creates a fantastic tension, and his exploration of contrast becomes visible in the undulating paintings with different densities in the surface, creating an optical illusion. ​

 

A movement away from his better known series, pushing the boundaries of experimentation and repurposing creative materials, Casselman's Untitled-Presence series are painted from the back of a polyester screen stretched over an aluminium box-beam frame; none of these paintings are manipulated from the front side.

 

Casselman has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in the United States and in Europe. His work is in the collections of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, Los Angeles, CA; Flint Institute of Arts, Flint, MI; Coral Springs Museum of Art; George Museum of Art; New Orleans Museum of Art; Museum of Modern Art of Bologna; and numerous private collections.
