Casey Childs. What amazing work! This painting is brilliant. It shows all the stuff that’s used to get us to look like natural beauties, ha ha.
I love Casey’s paintings, his subject matter is different, which I appreciate so much. The light on her face and hand makes her come alive. The finish on the walls, the door, the mirror… all brilliant!!
Check out more of Casey’s work, I didn’t want to spoil it for you! One fabulous painting after another! Casey is represented by Principle Gallery here in Charleston, judging by the Gallery ID for this piece (it ends in CHS) I would think it’s right here in Charleston, SC – something I didn’t realize when I started writing this!
Read a bit about Casey from his website (and check out more paintings):
“My work as a whole encompasses an exploration of the human experience. My interest in the people around me comes from the idea that we look at people every day, but we never really stop to SEE them. In every painting I strive to capture the beauty, variations and complexities of the human form. The goal of my portrait work is to capture the soul of the individual–not just their likeness. I’m inspired by the figurative works (to name a few) of Sargent, Fechin, Thayer, Caravaggio and John Giarrizzo. John, my art professor at Northwest College, instilled in me a great love of art and an immense desire to create it. His work and ideas have found their way into mine. I see my work as a self-portrait in that the subjects of my paintings are all a part of me, each painting a learning experience and an exploration of myself as an artist.”
