Early Life and Education

Career

Early in his career, Jackson Casady was a film studio employee and production assistant, working at major companies such as Siltanen + Partners, Bluegrass Films, the American Film Institute, Warner Brothers, and New Line Cinema. Casady has also worked as a red carpet talent escort for actors such as Eva Longoria and Tina Fey. For nearly a year, Casady worked as a gallery assistant for Kevin Barry Fine Art. [6] [12]

Casady left his job as assistant to focus on his art full-time. In August 2018, he rented a 450-square-foot studio at the Beacon Arts Building in Inglewood, which has high ceilings and big walls, compared to the garage he was working in before, where he can experiment more. [12]

Casady worked as a production assistant at the 91st annual Academy Awards which are also known as the Oscars. He said “the night has an energy to it, it's kind of a surreal experience," in an interview with The Beach Reporter. [12]

“When you're studying art, you look at these paintings in your text book and then if you go to a museum, it's a totally different experience with that painting,” Casady said. [12]

“The same thing with the Oscars. You can watch the Oscars on TV, but if you go to the Oscars, it's completely different, you kind of get it more. You understand it. There's more to unpack and explore. Especially working on it you understand what goes into it how much rehearsal, how many people are involved. That has been a much richer experience to actually be there.” [12]

In the Media

On February 28, 2019, Jackson Casady made the front page of The Beach Reporter's entertainment section, after he was interviewed by Michael Hixon about his art and Hollywood work experience. In February, Casady was also interviewed on the red carpet at Dolby Theatre by Elex Michaelson at Fox 11 Los Angeles. [3] [+] [+]

Artistic Style

Jackson Casady's paintings and drawings focus on "celebrating and critiquing a glamorous yet grotesque lifestyle in Hollywood." His work has a yin and yang pattern of being simultaneously nostalgic and contemporary, dreamlike and nightmarish, and glamorous and grotesque. [4] [2] [12]

Casady has also said that he feels a sense of loneliness amidst the chaos of Hollywood. “The celebrities have to keep themselves composed and elegant in the face of all of his energy, it's really chaos,” Casady said. “The red carpet is the most apparent. The paparazzi are like animals, it's a zoo.”

He added, “There's something about the tension there and those competing themes of being fashionably dressed and being elegant and at the same time having be this chaos and debauchery.” [12]

Casady's works (e.g. Hollywood Disco) are inspired by entertainment industry, which is filled with larger-than-life characters and personalities and defined by a seemingly dreamlike lifestyle. Commenting on this world, his art works depict several different narratives, boasting a cast of glamorous and grotesque figures. While these works celebrate the spectacle of Hollywood’s intrigue and reflect his own experience as a film studio employee, production assistant, Los Angeles resident, and son of a writer-producer, they also critique the industry, commenting on its monstrosity, exclusivity, whiteness, cruelty, idealization, sexual objectification of women, and the phenomenon that is celebrity.

Formally, the works are full of color and light, stylistically representational with an overall looseness and abstraction that comments on the industry’s tenuous obsession with both faux and actual reality. The invented, dynamic, energetic, and complex compositions show pockets of drama like the party or 'disco' that is Hollywood. [4] Casady's paintings have been featured in Impact Art Gallery in Los Angeles, California alongside works by Alex Yost, Bar Ben Vakil, Andy Warhol, KAWS, The Suited Racer, Tigran Tsitoghdzyan, Pablo Picasso, Montblak, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Julia Ryan, and David Weeks.
