simon casson

the thesmophoria (feasting), oil on canvas, 2009, 31x37, athene polias beloved boreas-erechtheus, oil on canvas, 2009, 70x55, attica 1, oil on linen, 2009, 16x14, daedala v, oil on canvas, 2008, 48x54

see simon casson's work here, here and here. from the scott richards site...
...the artist explores diverse historical and mythological themes, yet he presents his lushly painted subjects as deconstructed by the defiant energy of gestural abstraction. While literally dragging his fingers thru the paint, Casson stirs up the surface of his paintings, creating a mystifying collage of imagery that stimulate our eyes and minds all at once.
