(b. 1992, Bethlehem, PA)
Caslon Bevington is an American artist who lives and works in New York City. Bevington’s practice is a synthesis of her fascination with research, archiving, and postmodern image-making. The resulting works take the shape of paintings, installations, and multimedia assemblages that mirror––and often sample––Bevington’s Google image searches. She builds collections of found and sourced images of familiar objects and scenes, then manipulates her findings into complex, otherworldly compositions. Whether working in polyurethane resin or acrylic, Bevington’s works become time capsules, preserving memorabilia from her movement through both the physical and digital worlds.
Bevington studied at Parsons School of Design and The Art Students League of New York, and has shown her work at galleries, museums, and art fairs across the U.S. As a member of Apostrophe NYC’s Base 12 Project, her work was exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMa PS1, Coney Island’s Luna Park, Mana Contemporary, and the MTA’s Kosciuszko Street J train Station. She currently shows with Ki Smith Gallery and her works can be found in several prominent private and public collections.
