Nostalgic Surrealism -

What I love in Casey Weldon’s artwork is the nostalgic feeling they bring out, combined with various surreal symbols and concepts that make the viewer look and search deeper.

I quote from an interview the artist did for The Dirt Floor: “It’s hard for me, as I’m sure it is for most artists, to define my work to others, mainly because I want it to be so many things and am not sure what is translating the clearest. My intent is to be narrative, accessible, and hopefully pleasurable to look at. I definitely like to involve a lot of nolstalgic pop references, especially for the more humorous side of my work, but I also like referring to nature and man’s interaction with it. In the end my major goal is to get the viewer to be inquisitive about the painting, either to get the punchline, or make one up on their own. I can only hope that I can be interesting enough for them without being too ambiguous, but still say something without spelling it out. In the meantime, my technical skill is always improving, but has a long way to go before I’m anywhere near satisfied with it.”
