Art Opening: Cassie Rose: New Work

Cassie Rose's work revolves around ideas of identity in an age of fabricated personas. We continually normalize the curated versions of ourselves we present digitally as reality. I view the faces in these paintings as self-portraits, but only in the fact that they are anyone, and everyone, simultaneously. By abstracting faces to their simplest form I am reminded that in basic ways we all share similar experiences. 

This recent body of work I have reinforced notions of
shared experience by reducing my palette to muted pigments and minimizing depth by forcing three-dimensional forms into flat planes. There is also a new focus on including hands throughout these paintings, which physically represent our ability to support, hold, and lift each other. By recognizing the things we share we can find meaning in our honest existence, flawed or not.

Cassie Rose (American, b. 1985) is an artist based in Buffalo, NY. Rose has spent the last eight years exploring her artistic craft including time spent in materials exploration at School of Visual Arts in New York City. Beyond the visual arts, Rose works in costume departments for film and theatre. Her focus remains on exploring human experience through the manipulation of different materials.
