James Casebere

“Paradoxically emotional and austere, Casebere’s work centres on the point where photography, architecture and sculpture intersect. Carefully constructing table-top models of interior spaces using plaster, Styrofoam and cardboard, he dramatically lights these miniature interiors or “sites” before photographing them and enlarging the prints…. The results are both surreal and remarkably realistic…Though devoid of either plot or characters, his images of architectonic constructed spaces are nevertheless cinematic and poetic, at times implying a mute melancholic loneliness.” — Lisson

“There always seemed to me to be another aspect to his photographs:…That tinge of fantasy is part of the work’s seduction,… Then, too, there’s the mood–plangent and austere.” – Anonymous
