How did Casey Richardson started?
I started exploring 3D sometime 2013 I was halfway through my third year of a really dull uni course, I really wanted to try something new.
Who were your early influencers?
Renaissance sculptures have had a strong influence on me growing up and still does today, I was also a big fan of Jeff Koon’s style.
Where do you draw the line when it comes to what goes into your work and style?
I tend to avoid dark atmospheres to my work; nothing too serious and no subject too extreme.
What role does artists have in actual society?
To me artists are like a creative outlets. We get inspired, we turn that inspiration into art and in turn inspire others.
What do you want to provoke into / in your viewers?
I’ve always been interested in provoking a sense of what is the real vs unreal. I think combining something people understand with what they don’t is interesting.
Who are your current art inspirations? Do you look to other contemporary artist’s work during your artistic process?
The net art community has always been a big inspiration to me; I’m currently revisiting Hajime Sorayama artworks, I love his beautiful robots.
What is you opinion on modern art?
It’s interesting, making art without a narrative. Some people always need an answer to the reasoning behind ‘why the art was made’, I’ve always disliked that need.
How do you overcome creative blocks?
I watch movies, sci-fi or fantasy, the more cringe worthy the better.
How would you describe your work and your influences?
Bright and unusual, at times my influences are the complete opposite to the nature of my art.
What are your thoughts on the art community & market in Australia?
I’ve found the net art community has kind of expanded, the beauty of the internet is that we can connect with another miles away,Australia is but one of the many.
Shout out to all Australian artists out there, I would love to be more involved !
