Biography

Jacob Kassay creates reflective silver monochromes that reference work by Robert Ryman, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol. “There's no reason that we can't go back to the past and rehash ideas that maybe you thought weren’t complete,” he has said. Kassay has developed a unique process for the production of his works: he coats the front of his canvases in acrylic paint, then uses a form of electroplating to cover them with silver, sometimes burning the edges of the canvas or otherwise leaving them blank to preserve the traditional painting format.
