The new work by Casey Baugh, an artist living and working in New York City, can easily be mistaken for photography. Yet they are paintings. Described as "narrative impressionistic realism" on his website, his recent work explores a world filled with surreality as opposed to his past creations. As though inspired by 'The Matrix,' he depicts a cold world in which man and machine "coexist in a heightened state of tension and theatricality," observes Beautiful Decay.

Utterly mesmerizing, the new work by Casey Baugh encourages people to consider the impact technology will have on lives in the near future through a series of gorgeous imagery. In a way, it becomes a fetish object as it interacts with the beautiful subjects portrayed in each image.
