Jacob Kassay was born in Buffalo, New York in 1984 and earned his BFA at The State University of Buffalo in 2005. He currently lives in Los Angeles. Kassay's work focuses on situating objects according to their spatial limits while emphasising the experience of their provisional duration in an exhibition. In Kassay's work, the surface and support of painting merge into a cohesive object through the process of electroplating. As achromatic objects, their qualities and tonalities are dependent upon not only the canvases themselves but the reflection of their ambient surroundings.Read More
