Stanley Casselman

(born 1963)

Casselman has garnered fame and accolades for his progression paintings which he uses homemade squeegees to drag paint across the surface of his canvases, adjusting the angles and pressure of his tools to both add and remove paint, revealing layers of color from previous squeegee applications. His first show at Mark Borghi Fine ArtĀ utilizes these same practices however implements polyester screen, most notably used to make silkscreens. These screens permit for paint to be forced through, allowing the artist to apply paint to the screens from the back. Casselman uses masking tape to secure long bands of bare canvas. This practice takes advantage of the iridescence that the polyester screens possess, even the negative space of these works glows and dances with illusion. The result is a medley of colors, layers, and textures that transcend what we know to be traditional painting. The paintings manipulate what the viewer has come to understand to be two-dimensional both in the paints that have amalgamated on the picture plane and the layered complexity of the polyester screens.

Stanley Casselman studied at Pitzer College in Claremont, California and Richmond College in London, England. He has had solo and group exhibitions in the US and Europe. Acclaimed art critic Jerry Saltz in New York Magazine has reviewed him after accepting a challenge to recreate paintings by Gerhard Richter. His work is in numerous private and public collections.
