Kassia Rico is a Los Angeles based artist who enjoys working with painting, drawing, design and illustration. In her minimal works, she lightly places soft tones next to impossibly vivid colors, deconstructing the physical plane into compressions of space. Focusing on space, shadow, edges and texture, her works examine themes around contemporary american life and pastimes, nature and memory, reality and dreams. Rico’s work is firmly rooted in drawing. She explores the spontaneity of line work, graphic shapes and color to translate the mundane with a playful yet mature visual language. Kassia holds a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design.

These works are her personal projects. Two were made on good days and one not as good, still they illustrate a sense of our humanity and connection to nature and to others.
