Bernard Casey

Ankrum Gallery

Bernard Casey, talented Negro football player, favors working with decorative washes of figure symbolism. Woven in and out of his many-colored canvases are personal expressions of love, death, and reverence for the church. His pleasure in his work is very apparent, as is a sentimental attachment to the technics of Mark Rothko. There is an overall higher quality in his drawing than in his painting.
