About the artist
Born in Texas and raised in Virginia, Christine Cassano is an interdisciplinary artist, now living and working in Arizona, who exhibits regionally, nationally, and internationally. Her work explores connection, accumulation, and convergence as metaphors within our new, hyper-connected era. Cassano investigates biological formations, technological patterns, and aerial views as she examines their recursive nature and connections within our universe. Notable in her work is the use of small, unique patterns with materials like copper, porcelain, glass, mirror, concrete, metal formations, and even her own hair. The resulting installations, sculptures, and sound pieces explore cultural progress through emerging hybrid forms and converging systems.
Cassano graduated with a bachelor’s of fine art from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. She is a recipient of the 2018 Artist Research Grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. In 2016, she was awarded a Contemporary Forum Artist Grant from the Phoenix Art Museum, supported in part by the Nathan Cummings Foundation Endowment. In 2015, she was awarded a residency at the University of West Georgia and was also a recipient of the Phoenix Institute of Contemporary Art Grant, resulting in a published artist catalog of her work. Her public art sculptures, installations, and commissioned works are in various collections throughout the United States and abroad. Cassano is currently represented by Gebert Contemporary in Scottsdale and G2 Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
