ABOUT THE ARTIST

ARTIST STATEMENT

image5

  

I am a “late to the table” artist. In my youth I was happy producing “abstracty” art, but this was derided by a very “old school” art teacher. This put me off my art and my creativity crawled to the deep recesses of my consciousness.

A 30 year career in both the Army and the Police led me to be involved in the darker side of life seeing things no one should have to see. In that time, I suffered a number of tragedies and near tragedies in my personal life. From this I became quite reclusive.

Having had enough of the darkness I wanted to return to creativity, I wanted to leave a legacy. I tried and tried all sorts, but I could not create. What to do? Despite being a sceptic, I embarked on a course of hypnotherapy. After my 5th session I returned to my studio, paints out and “bang” a painting was created. My creativity restored, I continue to create and I am in love with it.

I would call myself an eclectic expressive abstract artist. My inspiration comes from many areas; it can be a place, a person, a song, hearing a word or phrase, and sometimes it is just the paint itself that speaks. Working mainly on canvas or canvas board I like to use bright colours and use an expressive and experimental approach to my work. I mainly use acrylic paint but do not restrict myself to one style. I like to use different mediums and processes to maximise my outcomes. I will occasionally return to the dark, if necessary, to help me create a particular piece, but I won’t stay there for long.

BIO

Daniel Casey has travelled extensively in his life but has now settled and lives and works in Chepstow.  Daniel is a self-taught artist. He does not restrict himself to one type of style, but works mainly in abstract or semi abstract. Daniel is expressive in his work and he likes to experiment with different materials and processes.

To help Daniel further, he has attended workshops with artists, such as Simon Williams from the Newlyn School of Art, Helen Elliott from Newcastle Emlyn and Heather Miller from Reading as well as a lot of on-line research and experimenting in his studio. Daniel has been accepted on a Fine Art (Hons) degree course in September 2019 at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

When Daniel first exhibited and saw people studying his work it gave him the validation he required and the inspiration and motivation to continue his pursuit of creativity. His debut solo exhibition is currently running at The Secret Gallery, Newent. He has also exhibited in the Forest of Dean, Cardigan, Lydney and Chepstow and his work can be found in collections in Belgium, Australia and around the UK.

MY INSPIRATION

image7


My inspiration comes from many areas.   It can be a place, a person, a song, an event in mine or others' lives. It can be hearing a word or phrase, it can even be just standing in front of a canvas and letting the paint speak for itself.


I love to talk to other artists and visit art galleries and feel inspired from the other artists' inspired creations.
