Previews: Casey Weldon – “Hastemaker” @ Roq La Rue

Tonight (October 1st) in Seattle, Casey Weldon (featured) will be presenting some new works at Roq La Rue collectively entitled Hastemaker. The surreal new paintings are rendered with a bright hyperchromatic palette, something the locally-based artist is known for, giving them almost a supernatural glow. This choice of illumination matches well with his cinematic narrative, giving the pieces an almost mystical quality. Discuss Casey Weldon here.
