JUL: An Ode to Freedom, works by Mandi Caskey in oil, acrylic, graphite, aerosol.“I travel around the country to find lost and forgotten structures and bring life to them once again.

When one engages in a conversation with my work, the best thing to do is listen, not search for a right answer. To understand art, one needs to throw away anything they know and give in to the work.
