MEET MIXED-MEDIA ARTIST CASS WYANT
Cassondra Wyant is a mixed-media artist who enjoys exploring the depths of the human condition and invites her viewers to peer into the human soul. Her fascination and obsession with the human body are common themes in her work. Her figurative works tell confessions and contemplations of desire, intrigue, sensuality, fear, pain, freedom, and transformation. Cass is also intensely interested in an abstract style, as her “Cityscape Series” reflect the dance between lines, color, and subject matter.
Cass is unique because she doesn’t allow herself to be categorized into one box. She is willing to explore almost anything, subject, style, medium, or substrate. This can be highly attributed to her background in graphic design in which she has often found herself teetering between the physical and digital world. Cass is not only a talented artist but an accomplished senior designer who has enjoyed creating history timeline walls and interpretive graphics for various companies and clientele all over the United States.

Cass’ figurative work explores the relationship between aesthetics and virtues as she strives to offer vibrant imagery intertwined with a meaningful message not far behind. The driving theme in her work often comes from life experiences and lessons, as there is much beauty in the adversity she has faced as a person. “I feel everyone has been through some kind of adversity in their lives that can wear many different masks, but at the end of the day, we all experience the same pain – we all share the same emotions.”
The main goal of Cass’ work is to evoke some feeling inside the viewer, as she firmly believes that art has the power to inspire and heal us.
“My work strives to provide an environment in which to say – embrace yourself and others so we can begin to heal. True strength comes not in the form of walls and protection, but in vulnerability and self-reflection.”
