about

Casey Riggs is a photographic artist that currently resides in Southern California where he teaches photography and works on research and art making. His artistic interests lie in the physical, psychological and learned histories we cary with us contrasted with photography's inherent historical capture. This exploration stems from the blending of multiple art forms and how photograph, as an instant history, can inform and abstract perception. Riggs uses his works to explores our personal histories and how our collective conciseness, histories and experiences influence the way we view art.

Casey Riggs uses traditional photographic materials to manifest a visual representation of the past, a catalog of our experiences that allows us to examine and explore what some consider intangible. Riggs uses film and traditional processes to further enhances the idea of the past in the present and the nature of photography as a historic index. through his use of medical imagery, abstractions derived from physical touch and the manipulation of traditional photographic processes, Riggs captures a precise space between the intangible and the actuality. It is between the abstraction and representation of our experiences that we start uncovering new meaning from the past to make the invisible visible and to start to understand the complexities of interpretation of personal histories.
