(B. 1963, Arizona, USA)
Stanley Casselman is a New York based artist whose sumptuously
calculated surfaces are motivated by a sense of awe and
wonderment in the intangible spiritual elements of our being.
Casselman is deeply committed to the notion that color, line and form
have the ability to change cognizance. The known and speculative
forces that create the lattice of our physical reality are often an
undercurrent within his paintings. Baroque yet simplistic, his process
reveals itself in a spectrum of layers and strokes exploring a range of
emotions in an efficacious search for higher consciousness.
Casselman (born in Phoenix, AZ) received his Bachelor of Arts from
Pitzer College, Claremont, CA. His works have been exhibited
nationally and internationally at galleries and museums including
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY; Gazelli Art House,
Baku, Azerbijan and London, UK; and Brintz Galleries, Palm Beach,
FL. His works are part of the collections of the New Orleans Museum
of Art, New Orleans, LA; Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, Los
Angeles, CA; Flint Institute of Arts, Flint, MI; and Borusan
Contemporary, Istanbul, among others. Stanley Casselman will be
having solo exhibitions at Lowell Ryan Projects, Los Angeles and
Gazelli Art House, London in the spring of 2021.
