Using colour and drama in combination with fast and bold strokes, David Casey imbues his paintings with energetic urgency and life. His inspiration comes from the familiar and local landscape; he takes joy in finding beauty everywhere and translating it to canvas. By identifying and emphasizing key structural elements and placing less emphasis on other components, David selectively sculpts his compositions, bringing focus to a small sunny glade or a monumental mountain.
David graduated from Carleton University with a degree in Art History and has studied under prominent Ottawa artists, including Gordon Harrison. His most commonly depicted landscapes include the Laurentians, Mont Tremblant, the Gatineau Hills, and McGregor Lake.
