I have some exciting news!
After 15 years in the same studio, I am bursting at the seams – so I am expanding, and moving to a new studio & gallery space. I am currently renovating the new location, and I will be ready to move in early 2017. That being said, I have A TON of stuff to go thru, toss, give away and art to sell so I don’t have to move it. My Birthday is on December 1st and in honor of my 17th annual 29th Birthday – I’m having a studio SALE – starting today!  All artwork by Casey Matthews at the Blue Door Gallery is 29% OFF through Friday, December 2nd (11:59PM EST) with the code “HAPPYBIRTHDAY29”

So go ahead and treat yo self! I have lots of new work, so shop online in your underwear: http://www.bluedoor-gallery.com

And stay tuned for the new studio/gallery location and grand opening early next year!

I just posted some new work on my website – so check it out!  Most of it is heading to Gallery Orange in New Orleans at the moment.  I will also be posting more over the next few weeks – I have been quite the busy little bee this new year, but just slow to photograph.  I’m also finishing up some more new work for a big show at Stellers Gallery in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida in March.  So save the date:  Friday, March 7th!  If you live in the North Florida area – come see me!

So – I’m the featured artist for the month of October.  I’m filling in for another artist that has not been feeling well for several months.  I’m not exactly prepared because I have been working on so many commissions lately, but I can at least commit to having my work hung nicely and my studio somewhat clean at least for one week in October!  Then I have to deliver or ship most of it bye-bye after that.  So if you are around, come say hello and see what masterpieces I have been working on lately. You will freak at how busy I have been!

Just Finished : Mnemonic

I like to incorporate text, newspaper, old books, sheet music, sewing patterns, etc, in my work. I find beauty in typeface and symbols, and enjoy merging the structured element with the intuitive. It becomes a form of communication in an otherwise seemingly senseless (non-objective) piece of work.
At one point, I thought I was going to be a graphic designer.  However, I did not care for the fastidious aspect of the career, or the computer headaches that followed.

So I have always been drawn to the font. This way I can appreciate the pattern and structure on my terms:

Recently my friend Kerry gave me a few Chinese magazines to have fun with. (see detail below)

Followup : Art in People’s Homes

As an artist, at times most of the time I get so hyper-focused on what I am actually doing, that I don’t really think about the future/fate of the actual work.  I like to create, then shove the little boogers out the door to a gallery so I don’t get too attached.

Here is a painting I sold last fall through Gregg Irby Fine Art.  I had to go do a minor touch up on it recently (apparently it got  scuffed up in transit).  So I got to snap a photo of it in its new habitat.  A perfect example of how a crazy piece of contemporary art leaves my über messy studio and ends up in a nice, peaceful, tranquil, traditional home on the banks of the St. Johns river.  Love it!
