Gallery: The Twisted Cities of Amy Casey


The folks over at Colossal clued us in to some new work by detail-oriented painter Amy Casey, who creates minute worlds bound up in twine. Her paintings are fascinating and surreal, a visual representation of the way our cities, towns and countries are bound up together, for better or for worse, sometimes in what looks like roads and rope, and sometimes in what feels much more like neurons and tendons. Perhaps fitting then, that one of her paintings references the town of Twin Peaks — just imagine a million more Twin Peaks with stories to follow. Click through to see our gallery of our favorites from Casey’s new work, see even more of Casey’s work here, and if you happen to be in or around Chicago, make sure to check out her solo show at Zg Gallery until August 6!
