Casavant's passion for painting has developed over the past several years, as he taught landscape and abstract painting in Boston and on Cape Cod through Northeastern University’s Graduate Institute in Education. He has exhibited his work at myriad of locations, including the Joesph Moakley Federal Courthouse, Boston, Pearl Street Gallery, the Gallery at Spencer Lofts in Chelsea, MA and the Yellow Barn Gallery in Glen Echo, MD.
Casavant prefers to work en plein air, painting largely in oil on location at dawn or dusk, when the sun’s interaction with his subject matter is at its most dramatic. He adheres to the old adage that “light is the bringer of beauty,” and his work reflects a strong emphasis on the interplay of light, shape and color, and a devotion to impressionism. “Chasing the light” best describes Casavant's paintings; “The natural elements and my paints combine to reward me with lasting memories.”
