DESCRIPTION

Casper Brindle has spent considerable time on a surfboard and one cannot deny that the artist pays homage to surf culture both in material and subject matter.  The Light and Space atmosphere of a Robert Irwin or James Turell has been referenced albeit briefly, and the artist has pondered the high-gloss, metal-flaked custom car finishes that are uniquely Californian; but with deliberate consideration, Brindle has embarked upon his own diaspora.  Armed with the tools and techniques perfected by those before him, Brindle has reinterpreted a subject that never ceases to provoke nostalgia and self-realization.  A postmodern mix of Light and Space meets Car/Surf Culture inform these works, but their seams are well hidden, and only those versed in the techniques of these California ideals will see the intersections.
