    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    'Check chasing' 'This Better Be Good' is a new work by artist Rikki Kasso who is currently based in Byron Bay, Australia. The self-taught art director, photographer and multi-disciplinary visual artist left his native New York City for Tokyo in 2003 on an invite from VOGUE JAPAN to host a retrospective of his works at the Rocket Gallery, Omotesando. He then spend the next nine years in Shibuya, Tokyo, immersed in the unique and ancient Japanese culture which not only influenced his art making practices but permeated its way through his entire being.

    Perhaps the greatest mark that Japanese culture made upon Kasso’s work was his discovery and appropriation of traditional Japanese Sumi ink and brush stroke techniques. Sumi ink is created using a method which has changed little over the last 2,000 years and its history is deeply rooted in Zen Buddhism. Kasso fuses the western style of impressionist painting with the delicate accuracy of an asian calligrapher in a unique and contemporary adaptation.

    Media: Oil on Linen.

    Note: This work is offered mounted on a stretcher and framed in a beautiful black timber frame, but for international shipping, as it is painted on canvas, the painting can be removed from the frame and stretcher and sent rolled in a tube. This could result in lower shipping fees. Please contact us if this is of interest.

Artist Rikki Kasso is currently based in Byron Bay, Australia. The self-taught art director, photographer and multi-disciplinary visual artist left his native New York City for Shibuya, Tokyo in 2003 on an invite from VOGUE JAPAN to host a retrospective of his works at the Rocket Gallery, Omotesando. He then spend the next nine years in Shibuya, Tokyo, immersed in the unique and ancient Japanese culture which not only influenced his art making practices but permeated its way through his entire being.

Kasso's artistic virtuosity is effortlessly translated through a variety of media and expressions from photography and film to paintings, drawings, and installations. His remarkable vision is presented through juxtaposed images of feminine sexuality, timeless landscapes and heavenly realities.

“My works represent my fascination with isolation in crowded environments, the subtleties of sexuality in humans and nature, and the pure sincerity of voyeuristic love. For me art is isolation, when we take something from its natural environment and put it on display, whether it's a canvas from the studio or a flower from the field we define beauty in its isolation. At the same time isolation is an emotion or a feeling. Contemplating love is perceived as an isolating moment of blissful confusion."
