solo exhibition by Casey Weldon
On View: November 30th - December 22nd, 2017

SPOKE NYC is pleased to present Catharsis an exhibition by Seattle-based artist, Casey Weldon in what will be his inaugural solo exhibition at SPOKE NYC and fourth exhibition with SPOKE ART. “Catharsis” is an exploration into Weldon’s surreal, stylized world inspired by pop culture. Consisting of a new body of paintings, Weldon uses cats as inspiration to create a satirical analysis on the internet and social media.

About his work, the artist states, “With the rise of social media, shared adoration and adulation have made the cat pic a frequent daily affair. Simultaneously pulling at our heart strings and poking our funny bones, the cat is equally worshiped and laughed at. This is a body of work exploring this duality while allowing me to hopefully get this whole cat painting thing out of my system.”
