Amy Casey

In my travels through Chicago’s biggest art gallery opening night of the year on Friday I came across these intriguing paintings by Amy Casey at Zg Gallery. I love the aesthetic of these paintings but there are also innumerable threads of meaning that can be derived from them. The houses and buildings can be read literally as a commentary on infrastructure or urban planning. They could also be more metaphoric alluding to connections between people, homes, technology, etc. Her statement addresses issues of natural disasters and security.
