Artist Statement

Lately, in these strange and exhausting days, I’ve been thinking a lot about uncertainty. In my recent paintings, that uncertainty and the idea of feeling or being lost is a focus for me. A profound lostness which could be the unsettling experience of finding yourself in a world turning alien around you, or more optimistically, a lostness that could lead to a hopeful escape to a new world. These paintings show a desire to escape into nature, which unfortunately seems to be on shakier ground than ever with the threat of the changing climate. Though I hope for the best, my paintings frequently express my anxiety for society and our world. This particular painting, Kiitos (Finnish for "thank you") was done after a stay at the beautiful rural artist residency Arteles in Haukijärvi, Finland. It's a little love poem to the gorgeous birch trees and the happiness I found there during a period of profound lostness and overwhelm.

Why We Love It

"Kiitos is how you express gratitude in Finnish, and grateful is just how Ms Casey was feeling during her artist residency at Arteles Creative Center in Finland’s countryside last year. Like many of us, Amy’s found comfort in creativity, nature and gratitude itself during these tumultuous times" ... Read more from Jen Bekman on the blog!
