Jacob Kassay practice includes painting, works on paper, mixed media, film, installation and collaborative projects. Kassay pursues the lineage of paintings as places for light and shadow. With their shimmering silver surfaces, his canvases transform blankness into aura and emptiness into reflection. These paintings have no color, no paint, and no image, but as objects in space, they take on all the lights, shadows, colors, and images of their surroundings. These are paintings about the experience of being in a room with a painting.
