“Be Kind to Ourselves”

By Kasey Child


$3,800 (Unframed)


Kasey Child creates texturally abstracted, chaotic landscapes in acrylic, primarily painting with a palette knife.  He also works with watercolor, pen & ink, color pencils and photography, often combining the media.  He is creatively impulsive, often going through intense phases of experimentation with a new subject or style.  

He is motivated by environmental chaos, climate change, and the border between development and nature.  “When I’m painting at my best, I want the viewer to see the land and the sky combined as one, that there is no difference, to see the impacts of our actions, or our collective inaction.  I want to show the risk of our trajectory and the path of our habituations.  I’m really trying to evoke the emotion we’re living through, the uncertainty and instability.” 

Kasey works and lives in Burlington, Vermont.  His work can be found in collections throughout the United States.
