Gazelli Art House Stanley Casselman 1

Stanley Casselman’s ‘Full Circle’ at Gazelli Art House until July 22nd

Gazelli Art House presents Full Circle, the first solo exhibition by New York based artist Stanley Casselman to be held in the UK. Featuring a new series of paintings titled Untitled Presence, this body of work returns to the essence of the artist’s practice and motivations. Whilst progressing his interest in art-making processes, a mantra of ‘innovate or die’ has led him down paths only the most curious creatives could ever uncover, and he treads new ground as he dives yet deeper into the depths of the visual unknown.

Making a departure from his Inhaling Richter series and drawing inspiration from earlier works, Casselman constructs innovative abstract compositions in fresh hues, pushing his materials and tools to the limit. Explaining what drives this practice, the artist contextualises his work within that of Art History:

The aim with each and every painting or how I judge the outcome is best explained by recounting the experience I had upon first seeing Jackson Pollock’s “One, Number 31” at MoMA (1985). I’d studied Pollock in college, but I’d never seen one in the flesh. I was drawn to the freedom in the way Pollock dripped, poured and spattered paint, but what happened that day at MoMA truly changed the course of my life. I froze in my tracks upon encountering the piece. Time and awareness of the space around me vanished, I became emotionally free, floating in and out of the work. Thus, it’s this experience that I’m trying to regenerate and the threshold or bar that I judge my work by.
