There is an almost surreal aspect to Comhghall Casey’s highly realist studies of everyday things – “vegetables, fruit and children’s toys”. Each item gets a painting to itself, considered in isolation, against a neutral background, as though it is a model in a photographic studio. Casey says he aims to make his subjects “tangible, distinct and convincing”.
