About

Case Greenfield

Contemporary Artist. Philosopher.

The work of Case Greenfield evolves around the idea of ‘mind models’, “the realities that we create to shape ourselves”.

He likes to call it postmodern realistic art. It’s all about the interplay between experience, imagination, and reality – whatever reality is, exactly.

His work, typically, explores the relations between reality and our interpretations of it: “Perception makes sense.” He uses artistic expression to encourage emotional affirmation of the beholder.

With his art Case aims to bring joy from beauty, and affirmation of who we are – our identity, both individually and as human beings. His art helps us feel that we belong in the life that we want to live. That is what he means with ‘Warm Grounding‘.

His first and currently only art project is Blank Slate.

Postmodern Realist

Is Case a contemporary, typical postmodern artist? Well, yes and no. Yes, in the sense that he does see art as a useful means to escape from the limitations of reality.

No, in the sense that he tries to find a way to merge the realities, that we create to shape ourselves, into a futuristic interpretation of reality in the age of artificial intelligence and other disruptive technology, hence accepting a totally new form of limitation: our position in the evolutionary grand scheme of things. Bridging realities and reality, synthesizing the Humanities and the Sciences into a ‘Grand Unified Theory of Everything’.

So, sort of a Postmodern Realist, attempting to close the philosophical circle of modern art from Realism to Postmodernism … and the circle of human culture.
