London based artist Cain Caser’s paintings draw from his past experiences with graffiti and rave culture. For his works, Caser destroys older sketches and paintings to create vibrant and chaotic portraits that drift between the figurative and the abstract.
“The paintings have been conceived as portraits. Occupying the gap between figuration and abstraction they exploit the tendency to see faces where none exist and in turn be interpreted according to an individuals own unique visual hierarchy. The motivations of my younger self, ego and excitement, are the same cues that I paint by today. My working method currently is to cut up and photocopy sketches with paint on paper creating a collaged drawing which then serves as maquette for a painting.”
