Casey Chen.: N.Smith Gallery

Casey Chen’s work jumps between nostalgia and futurity, the oriential and ornamental. Ceramic sutures form fragments of entrusted memories and lives so beautifully.


A unique mix of perspectives and ideas, Casey's new body of work blends childhood nostalgia together with long-standing East Asian ceramic traditions. Behind each work lies a historical reference or two skillfully paired with allusions to popular culture and gnarly throwbacks.


Interested? Casey's busy making work for the show, but we're happy to send you a preview once the works are ready. Just let us know.
