Christine Cassano is a mixed-media artist working primarily in concrete, metal, and found organic objects. Her art studio is located in central Phoenix where she works full time. Many of her art works are in private collections throughout Arizona, Vermont, New York, Maryland, Virginia, Florida, New Mexico, and California. Her art has been exhibited at galleries and juried exhibitions throughout Arizona and Virginia.
Christine’s early work included oil paintings and in early 2000 began to explore various mixed media by incorporating metal and resin into her pieces. In 2006 she began experimenting with concrete and incorporated a host of found objects into the matrix.
Currently she creates intricate assemblage pieces which incorporates this concrete medium along with a variety of industrial and organic materials into her work. Objects like worn metal machined parts, spent bullets, old circuit boards, recycled glass, and hand-cast aluminum pieces share the same space with dried delicate plant life, soils, insects, bones, and other organic materials in order to create a visual dialogue exploring ideas related to our environmental integration and human adaptation.
Born and raised in Virginia, Christine Cassano attended Virginia Commonwealth University and Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA where she received her BFA in 2001. After graduation she moved across country and relocated to Phoenix, Arizona to pursue a life in the visual arts.
