Stanley Casselman was born in 1963 in Arizona and lives and works in New York City. Believing that painting should be transcendent, he strives to discover unknown truths through pure abstraction. Applying acrylic paint to canvas with brushes, squeegees, and directly from the tube, he builds up a surface with layers of paint, only to destroy and unearth what lies beneath. Casselman has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in the United States and in Europe. His work is in the collections of the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation, Los Angeles, CA; Flint Institute of Arts, Flint, MI; Coral Springs Museum of Art; George Museum of Art; New Orleans Museum of Art; Museum of Modern Art of Bologna; and numerous private collections.
