Gazelli Art House Baku opens a four year survey of the artist Stanley Casselman's work

BAKU.- Gazelli Art House Baku is presenting Labyrinths of Light, a four year survey of the artist Stanley Casselman, curated by David Anfam. This exhibition marks Casselman’s second solo show with the gallery and includes a concise selection from the Frequency, Untitled-Presence, Day One and Liquid series.

Throughout his career, Casselman’s work has been fuelled by a fascination with the properties of light. Starting twenty-five years ago, in response to looking at the stained glass windows of Westminster Abbey, Casselman began his artistic practice creating rear-illuminated paintings. He then turned his focus on to his pioneering work with polyester screens.

Casselman captures the varied properties of light through his bold, large-scale, abstract paintings full of hills, valleys, peaks and troughs. These colorful labyrinths of works from Frequency and Untitled-Presence series explore surface tension and abstractions in ingenious ways. Using his own handcrafted tools, Casselman’s highly labor-intensive process pushes paint through screens layer by layer – as in the case of his Day One series too. The results are often both minimalistic and richly detailed capturing subtle changes in colour, line and form.

“The new compositions [of the Liquid series] involve the industrial process known as spray chroming, a water-based means to apply silver nitrate to a surface, leading to reflective, mirrored finishes,” said David Anfam, Senior Consulting Curator at the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver. “In Casselman’s hands the results become a journey through a fantastical, labyrinthine landscape that emanates light.”

“We are eager to present the outcome of this highly-anticipated collaboration at our gallery in Baku,” said Mila Askarova, CEO and Director of Gazelli Art House, “Since our very first show together in 2014, Stanley has continuously pushed the boundaries of creating and recreating his process-driven works – reaching incredible heights with the end result!”

Stanley Casselman was born in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1963. His work has been shown and collected by museums around the world, including the Fredrick R. Weisman Art Foundation in Los Angeles, California, the New Orleans Museum of Art in New Orleans, Louisiana and the Borusan Contemporary in Istanbul, Turkey.

“The simple thought that constantly runs through my head is innovate or die. To keep remaking the same thing over and over, bores me to tears. That’s why my practice is evolving.” --Stanley Casselman
