CASEY UNDERWOOD b. 1991 Lake Arrowhead, CA
Casey Underwood is an artist and freelance designer currently residing in Seattle, WA. After graduating with a BA in Studio Art from Westmont College, Casey loaded up his station wagon with fly rods and art supplies and set out on a two month road trip around the western United States. In his pursuit of world class rivers and trout, Casey found inspiration in the places he saw and trout he encountered. Along the way, Casey began to create a body of work that combined his passion for fly fishing with his artistic expression. Since then, Casey's work has continued to delve deeper into the subject matter of fish, watersheds and natural themes.
Over the years, Casey's work has manifested itself in various methods including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and digital media. Regardless of the medium, it's not hard to recognize elements of Casey's signature style. Levitating objects, vast skies and geometrical shapes are a few reoccurring themes in his work, accompanied by clean edges, layers of color and crosshatched lines. Above all, Casey's work strives to convey a unique and intriguing perspective on otherwise familiar subject matter.
