Rodrigo Cass Biography

In his recent practice, Rodrigo Cass connects his interests in philosophy and art history to his own spirituality. His works hold a sculptural quality in which concrete is the synthesis of his artistic mindset: a spiritual element, living and breathing. For the artist, breathing is at the bottom of all experience. "All that lives, breathes. And breathing is the action of the spirit". Cass seeks to promote moments of quiet and pause with empty areas, clarified by the use of color.
