Casey Freeman is a Melbourne Ink Artist. She feels passionate about creating original artworks, so as to preserve the magical, unpredictable nature of ink. After a successful past two years as an emerging artist, 2017 filled up quickly with invitations to exhibit at The Other Art Fair, Melbourne and Sydney; Tokyo International Art Fair; and Decor and Design, Melbourne. Casey has become known for her monochromatic palette of indigo tones, capturing the uniformity found in an alpine forest, the movement of billowing clouds, and the depth of colour in ocean currents. With a minimal selection of materials, Casey often draws a crowd with her mesmerising live ink painting.
As an artist, I work to develop paintings that speak to both me and others about the purity in nature. Part of my process before I begin painting is to observe and study the natural elements. I want to internalise the uniformity found in an alpine forest, the movement of billowing clouds, and the depth of colour in ocean currents. I do not want to capture the image with my brushes; rather, with a minimal selection of materials, I aim to capture the essence, simplicity, and purity of the natural world.
