ELLA CASSISI





About


I finished my study Fine Arts at the ArtEZ Art Academy in Arnhem in 2011. I not only practice painting and drawing but also photography, film making, printing techniques and sculptural works, working with bronze and cast aluminum. In addition I learned some glass blowing techniques and working with ceramics. A wide range of techniques and I found merit in them all.


During that time my paintings/works became more wild, organic and expressive, often consisting of different materials, introducing rhythm and structures. Using splashings, drippings and introducing different kinds of sand in my work.

Black and white, these "non-colours" symbolize the universal forces for me, that's why they are so important in my work.

Sand, which I like to use, is of great significance: due to its low fertility, it stands for drought, dryness and its countless grains seem perhaps worthless. But because of its countless numbers it also stands for abundance, as well as eternity.



I move on the border between chaos and order, darkness and light, Yin and Yang - the forces that hold the universe in motion.


I hope to inspire people to take a step back and to get another perspective on being human, reflect on their thoughts and actions. Take time to truly see, to discover their own imperfect beauty.

Be proud of the struggles and the processes.

Ad curram et Cummunico


- to care is to share -




I really liked the idea of creating something beautiful which can only be experienced for a short period of time. Since creation is one part and destruction is another part of life.
