Jacob Kassay

Jacob Kassay is a painter in that part of what he does involves oil paint but the reality of his creations are something considerably left of your painterly preconceptions. Using skills and interests picked up in his science days, Kassay coats the painted canvas’ with silver, the combination of the surface oxidising and a viewers angle to the piece revealing the paint below allowing the viewer to literally place themselves within the picture. Presented on an apt reveal/conceal style website, though undoubtedly best seen in person, it is a conceptually intriguing collection.
