Amy Casey Statement: Lately – in these strange and exhausting days, I’ve been thinking a lot about uncertainty. In my recent paintings, that uncertainty and the idea of feeling or being lost is a focus for me.  A profound lost-ness which could be the unsettling experience of finding yourself in a world turning or already turned alien around you, or more optimistically, a lost-ness that could lead to a hopeful escape to a new world. These paintings reveal a desire to escape into nature which unfortunately seems to be on a shakier ground than ever, in a changing climate.  A nature which though still inviting, is both under threat from us, and also threatening us in return.  The water is rising. The forest is cut down. But stumps, while dead, often create a home for new life of a different type- even if only mosses, fungus and parasites. Perhaps it is a cause for hope. Life adapts and uses whatever resources are there to continue. I guess that is what we will do. Though I hope for the best, my paintings frequently express my anxiety for society and our world.”
