Eric Sutphin reviews a recent exhibition of works by Ginny Casey at Half Gallery, New York.

Sutphin writes: "Casey synthesizes the influences of painters ranging from Milton Avery to Morandi to Guston in wholly original paintings that cast a universe of specific objects (invented or real) in scenes that celebrate play and creative mischief... Casey frequently portrays mysterious spaces where impish figures and objects lie in wait, ready to be called out into the open, her scenes enlivened with anticipatory energy. Her paintings suggest that the artist’s studio is a world in which myriad unexpected things dwell."
