01:39 am - moving blog

Just wanted to let my three readers (including my mama) know that I am moving my blog to a wordpress blog, http://amycaseypainting.wordpress.com/ i am still tinkering with the format and what not but I've been getting a lot of spam comments here and am hoping for less of that. We will see! i will miss my mood tags though. :)

07:40 pm - Little Thing magazine

Little Thing magazine out of China featured some of my work earlier this year.
Unfortunately I can't understand the language, but they have some very lovely images in
their magazines.

Little Thing is an independent fashion and art magazine targeting Chinese young creative
females and circulates in 5 big Chinese cities(Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou
and Shenzhen)


check out my work in the magazine!Collapse )

02:08 am - video for Cleveland Arts Prize

 I already posted this on my facebook page and I know Zg sent it out, so hopefully people aren't feeling haunted and harangued by my visage by now, but thought i would link to the video Ted Sikkora did of me in my studio for the Cleveland Arts Prize, if only to keep everything tidy and all together.

sorry the embedded video seems to load really slow-on my computer anyways.

01:17 am - Free Hugs!

I love the name of this Russian magazine. They were lovely and kind enough to use my work on their cover earlier this year. I believe that date under "Free Hugs" is December 2010-January 2011. Just call me a language detective.
Whoops, I seem to have cut the top edge off in the scan. gah.

check out the rest of the article, if you know how to read Russian...Collapse )

11:22 pm - Article in the Chicago Tribune

Lori Waxman reviewed my show at Zg for the tribune, you can find it here.

In other exciting news, I have finally finished hosing down and cleaning up my house! I can walk  around and the only thing I trip on is cats. yay!
So I will begin back to work with a tidy studio. I am also going to be making more prints at Zygote Press, one of my favorite places in the Cleveland arts scene. So lots of fun things to look forward to.

04:03 am - new show coming up!

 been working on paintings for a new show at Zg Gallery in Chicago. I've been playing around with scratching into the claybord with an etching needle to pull out whites. This painting is called Steadfast Bunch, and is 36 x 36.  

somehow, i was dopey enough to think this process would be quicker, but it's really not. however, i like it. its sort of fun in an infuriating sort of way. a bit similar to hand sewing a quilt. here's a detail:

11:44 am - twin peaks

I will be showing a painting in a tribute exhibition to Twin Peaks which is having its 20th anniversary this year.  (yikes, doesnt seem that long ago, or maybe it does..)

When I was invited, I wasn't quite sure what to make of the connect until I re watched the program. Then I was excited to make a painting tapping into this quirky little town with complex connections, and after all, connections in communities and city growth are things I've been thinking about a lot in my work lately. I wish I had more time, but I am reasonably happy with what I ended up making. I'll post a picture of the painting when I get a moment.

here is more info on the show and the other other artists:
