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.
