Casper Brindle’s paintings are explorations of the expressive possibilities of color, light and form. His palette ranges from spectacularly technicolor to subtly monochromatic, but ever present is the notion of center. Whether it’s a striking, hard-edge horizon line running through the painting or a metallic bar floating on the surface, there is always a form that pulls us deeper into the imagery that Brindle presents.

 

A contemporary disciple of the 1960s & 70s Light and Space generation, Brindle too is intrigued by the sensory experiences triggered by color and light. His expansive paintings shift and morph as the viewer walks past them, compelling them to pause and begin to explore the enigmatic spaces of perception. Brindle has referred to the process in which he creates his works as trance-like, and one can’t help but notice the meditative quality these paintings induce.

 

Brindle’s work has clear ties to the materiality of the Finish Fetish and Light and Space movements, and his masterful use of color invokes the emotive qualities of painters like Mark Rothko and Jules Olitski. However, Brindle synthesizes sensibilities from these disparate movements and creates something entirely his own. Brindle’s paintings envelop the viewer in expansive fields that not only delight the senses, but have the power to elicit deeper emotional responses. Utilizing tools and techniques adopted from Southern California’s distinctive car culture, Brindle applies fine layers of airbrushed sprays to create atmospheric gradations of subtle depth. In his early works, Brindle often embedded glowing tubes of LEDs in his paintings, but he has now managed to harness the effect of light solely with color.

 

Born in Toronto in 1968, Brindle’s family relocated to Los Angeles in 1974, and he has called the city home ever since. Mr. Brindle apprenticed for the pioneering Light and Space artist, Eric Orr in the late 80's.

 

Casper Brindle’s work has been exhibited across the United States and internationally. His work is held in a number of prominent private and museum collections including the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation and the Morningside College Collection in Sioux City, IA.
