Jacob Kassay

The work of mix-media artist Jacob Kassay hovers between painting, sculpture and interactive installation, and takes inspiration from the surrounding space—reflecting, distorting and relating to both the architectural environment and the movement of its viewers. Kassay is perhaps most well known for his silver paintings, made using an electroplating technique that references early photography, which warp the reflection of their viewers as well as depicting subtle changes in light throughout the day. Form, surface and physicality are key in Kassay’s work, which is conceived as both softly gestural and ambiguous in its complexity.


Kassay has participated in a number of solo and group exhibitions including MoMA PS1, New York, ICA, London, Art: Concept, Paris, France, Protocinema, Istanbul, Turkey, Fondation Ricard, Paris, Kunsthalle Andratx, Mallorca, Spain,  ME Contemporary, Copenhagen, Denmark, and Collezione Maramotti, Italy.
