I went to visit Casper Brindle, and his studio helper daughter. We had a lively conversation, I learned so much from his sharing about paint and process. About how he explores different ways to show light and space. He shared the models he makes for the larger installations, planning spacing and paint. These models were about reflections and dimensions and seeing beyond one to the next through openings created in the monolith-like shapes. An extension creations from his signature work of imagined colorful horizons, seemingly dipped in a resin reflection of dimensional space. Thank you Casper for the fun experience.
Picked up from his website bio: “Casper Brindle’s paintings reveal themselves slowly, bathed in tones that recall the magic half-light of dawn and dusk, where form and space are veiled in shimmering glimpses and murky pools. Essentially, they are sophisticated studies of atmosphere, vaporous ambiguities that intrigue, and compel us to navigate the hazy borders of perception. Subtle horizon lines aide this navigation.” (see more about Casper at his website link below)
Casper was born in Toronto, Canada in 1968, shortly after his parents emigrated there from England. They moved to Los Angeles in 1974.
