April 15-May 21
Ingalls & Associates is proud to present EYEWALL, new paintings by Nate Cassie
from April 15th to May 21st with a reception for the artist on Friday, April
15th from 7-10pm.
Nate Cassie’s work varies in media and form, ranging from photography and
video to installation and painting. Cassie uses art as a lens with which to view
disparate disciplines and attempt a distillation of the connections - actual
or imagined, made and missed - which link individual pursuits and ideas, natural
phenomenon and desire.
The paintings that comprise EYEWALL mimic nature’s
rules, inspired by beauty, violence and chance within natural events- a flower
blooming, an avalanche sliding
to a stop, a hurricane spinning across the ocean- using logical, well ordered
systems to produce effectively random results. The work invokes number theory
using predecessors like Fibonacci and Poincare to create something beautiful
in a cool, industrial
Cassie uses the imprecise science of art to tap into relationships within
imprecise sciences such as meteorology, genetics, botany, history and boxing.
This study is fueled by perception and chance.
Nate Cassie’s current work
has been show at various locations in the U.S. and abroad, most recently at the
Corcoran Museum in Washington, DC; the Art Museum
of Queretaro, Mexico and the Houston Center for Photography. He is a past fellow
in the ArtPace Foundation’s International Artist in Residence Program in
San Antonio and the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts’ FIVA
residency program in Miami. Nate Cassie is currently based in San Antonio, TX.
