On November 30th, Spoke Art in New York will be hosting the opening for Casey Weldon’s (featured) solo show. Entitled Catharsis, the title of the exhibition is a play on words in the same vein as the humor usually seen in the locally-based artist’s work. Felines play a key role in the new imagery, as it is often the case in Weldon’s past work, and are the vessels through with he creates a “satirical analysis on the internet and social media.”
Weldon further explains – “With the rise of social media, shared adoration and adulation have made the cat pic a frequent daily affair. Simultaneously pulling at our heart strings and poking our funny bones, the cat is equally worshiped and laughed at. This is a body of work exploring this duality while allowing me to hopefully get this whole cat painting thing out of my system.”
