Cassie’s work includes drawing, painting, sculpture, video and digital media. His thematic practice centers on what he terms “spaces in between,” the gaps that distance surface from volume, skin and structure, formal and intuitive systems. “It’s the place where a rub or a nudge occurs—the space in between layers, the space in between object and reflection, the space in between myself and others.” – Nate Cassie
