The Real Truth About It Is My Kind Of Life's No Better Off If It's Got The Map Or If It's Lost
Casey McGlynn first began exploring his creativity as a child, drawing for hours and developing his robust visual language. McGlynn’s paintings, often including collaged elements, are honest, vulnerable, and dynamic. He depicts himself and those close to him, through symbols like whales, birds, elephants, horses, and a large man in red. Angst is balanced by humor, and canvases include written words that read like diary entries. Inspired by the early punk rock scene in Toronto, ON, and a musician himself, McGlynn's connection to punk’s rejection of the mainstream is evident. But McGlynn’s rebellion is approachable, posed as a question he continues to explore in his sensitive work.
