The ARt of ARt
About his artwork John McCaskill states, “I’m interested in creating a sense of balance. A place where the world of abstract and conceptual ideas meet the natural world. McCaskill’s artwork has been influenced by traditional Eastern art and the Japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi that accepts accepts transcience in all things around us. “There is a natural process that is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. Like the world around us my art is constantly evolving”.
