Casper Brindle's paintings reveal themselves slowly, bathed in tones that recall the magic half-light of dawn and dusk, where form and space are veiled in shimmering glimpses and murky pools. Essentially, they are sophisticated studies of atmosphere, vaporous ambiguities that intrigue, and compel us to navigate the hazy borders of perception. Subtle horizon lines aide this navigation.

The paintings evolve through a process of repeated layerings of paint. They are airbrushed with color-shifting car paints, then coated in resin. With their high gloss surfaces and nuanced focus, the work is clearly linked to the Finish Fetish and Light and Space movements - and reflect sensibilities that grew, and continue to thrive, in the coastal atmosphere of LA's surf and car culture.

Casper Brindle grew up surfing the beaches along LA's coast during the 1970's and 80's, and worked for Light and Space artist Eric Orr in the late 1980s. The movement, and the landscape from which it arose, have clearly inspired his development and direction as an artist. With this new series, it is exciting to see how far Brindle has made this pursuit his own and how much fresh terrain remains to be explored.

Casper was born in Toronto, Canada in 1968, shortly after his parents emigrated there from England. They moved to Los Angeles in 1974.
