“Torschlusspanik” by Corey Casey
24″ x 48″ Acrylic & Colored Pencil on Canvas
This piece is a surrealistic self portrait featuring the artist as a massive floating head with an extreme purple hue the subject is also enveloped by yellow and orange organic swirls floating in and out of the frame and from behind the subject. There is a contrasting relationship between these two subjects if anything, this massive head only serves as an obstruction to the natural flow of the piece. Translated from German, Torschlusspanik is the fear that time is running out to act and almost perfectly fits the concept of this pieces as the subject itself is stagnant and in direct opposition with the world around it.
