BIOGRAPHY

Stanley Casselman was born in 1963 in Arizona and currently lives in New York City. His work has been extensively exhibited both domestically and abroad, including shows in London, Vienna, Basel, Seoul and Hong Kong. Casselman’s dramatic paintings are celebrations of abstraction, in which layers upon layers of vivid colors are applied across the canvas plane in striking juxtapositions. These paintings’ complex surface textures allow the interplay of color to dominate the picture-plane, with each composition a perfect balance of “controlled chaos,” as the artist says.
