Buffalo, NY – In an atmosphere where news and media are moving at a disorienting pace and content is vastly negative content, Cassandra is seeking respite in moments of beauty. Biology and physics tell us that plants growing and rainbows appearing are not magic, but they inspire those feelings; that mysterious elements are at play - enchanting and aesthetically powerful. In this age of technology, information is presented at an alarming rate and it is becoming more and more difficult to pause and deeply connect with our surroundings and tangible environment. By producing works that highlight themes of beauty and wonder, Cassandra consciously captures the ephemeral and magical moments of life. This exhibition offers a space to slow down and reset, providing visual antidotes that showcase the power of perspective and counter the negativity present in our current climate. Cassandra's hope is that this work will inspire conversation about ways of seeing, common ground, and the beauty inherent in daily life.
