Casey Jeffery: spotting the differences

Casey Jeffery: spotting the differences

Casey Jeffery, Laying Sheets (Wool Blanket) II, 2019. Acrylic and oil on board, 70 x 60cm. Courtesy: the artist and MARS Gallery, Melbourne.

 

Young Melbourne artist Casey Jeffery’s nostalgic paintings are a celebration of Australian suburbia, transcending the mundane, humble home with psychedelic charm.

Jeffery’s painting practice comprises ultra-smooth, colourful depictions of ornamentation characteristic to the post-war, brick-front houses of Melbourne suburbia, offering a nuanced reading of Australian domestic life. Her carefully planned compositions and unique combination of hard-edge and free-hand painting stripes seemingly common design features of context, elevating them for contemplation.

This series of paintings is largely a continuation of the stripe paintings – except the squares make up the stripes, the stripes formulate the composition and the colour is a methodical decoy.

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 20 June 2019
