2012 - 2019 > The Black Suite

"Angela Casey's images reside in glossy pools of beautiful darkness, quiet and introspective. In contrast, the presentation is reminiscent of a shiny black television screen, public and exposed.

The works delve into the fragility of life and the certainty of death, using vehicles and metaphors of Memento Mori and Dutch Vanitas painting of the 17th century.

...to fear death in a novel, a short story, a film or an artwork is rapturous because of its distance from reality".
