Casey Haugh

Casey Haugh graduated from Pratt Institute in 2009 with a BFA in Painting. He has been painting color field abstract expressionism for over a decade. Although some works have titles, Casey encourages the viewer to interpret the subject matter on their own. While Casey takes the act of painting very seriously he does not intend these paintings to be viewed as "serious" works. Rather he would prefer them to be viewed as a feast for the viewer's eyes or a maze of colors and shapes that the viewer bounces around and occasionally gets lost in. Casey believes that the purpose of these paintings is to allow the viewer to take a break from the day-to-day stresses of life and become immersed in a world of color and shape. Utilizing techniques of “push and pull” Casey manipulates the acrylic and oil paints to form mesmerizing compositions. Casey hopes that the viewer feels the excitement and freedom he tries to convey with his gestural and rhythmic style in each work.
