Zg Gallery is excited to announce our 14th season opening with
Amy Casey's solo exhibition "Expansion: New Paintings".


Amy states "Building upon recent work, I have been in search of solid ground.  A bit less kinetic than past work, I have been trying to take what was left of the world in my paintings and create a stability of sorts: thinking about community ties and the security (or illusion of security) needed to nurture growth.  Cities are fascinating creatures that I am just beginning to scratch the surface of.  The work and organization that goes into a city's creation and evolution, the constant shifting and adaptations, the sometimes hidden history of these changes, and a city's dependence on civilian cooperation, are things I like to think about.  Reflecting this interest, burgeoning cities have begun to fill in the void in my paintings.  As in life, with a sort of trial and error, some efforts work better in making the whole precarious heap hum.  I am consistently fascinated by the resilience of life and our ability to keep going in the face of shifting circumstances.  My paintings celebrate this fascination and my love of the urban landscape."

 

Amy Casey received her B.F.A. from the Cleveland Institute of Art in Ohio.  She has been a recipient of the Cleveland Arts Prize, Emerging Artist Award and a Creative Workforce Fellowship and has exhibited in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and at the Museum on Contemporary Art, Cleveland.  This will be Amy Casey’s fifth solo show with Zg Gallery in Chicago.
