Critics describe artist Casey O’Connell as “one of the West Coast’s most fawned over new artists.” Her femme figures often seem vulnerable and a bit sentimental, existing in a romantic fantasy that is at the same time familiar – a juxtaposition of daily reality and dream world. Her provocative portraits are surrounded by ethereal, immersive environments, consistent with the indigo-inspired backdrop of her most recent work, Two Ships, 2013. Casey explains, “the painting, Two Ships, was inspired by Aboubakar Fofana’s Organic Indigo and my desire to find my own favorite blue.”
