ABOUT
Christine Cassano is an interdisciplinary artist whose work is a continuous exploration of the idea that embodied information exists through an interconnected and unseen universe. She explores this invisible framework through her lens of synesthesia and other esoteric abstractions. Her practice is informed by research of scientific, philosophical, and cosmological principles and is made accessible to audiences through sculptures, painting and soundscape installations.

She holds fine arts degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University and Old Dominion University. She was the 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 and an exhibition at 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, which included an interactive community-based installation project that is now part of the college’s permanent collection. That year she was also a recipient of the Phoenix Institute of Contemporary Art Grant, resulting in a published artist catalog of her work.

Recent solo exhibitions include Sine Language at Ft. Lewis College in 2023, Recursions at Artspace Arizona in 2021, Litmus at Gebert Contemporary Scottsdale in 2018, BlackBox at Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum in 2017 and Threading Conjecture at Phoenix Institute of Contemporary Art in 2016. Other recent exhibitions include Form&Concept Gallery, Currents New Media, and FOMA Gallery in Santa Fe, NM as well as Durden & Ray in Los Angeles and in Arizona at Scottsdale Center for the Arts, Tempe Center for the Arts, University of Arizona, and Desert Botanical Gardens.
