From Optic Pathways, a solo exhibition at the Otra Vox Gallery. Cascio plays with themes of obsession, compulsion, and ritual practice. Color and its transformative effects on the human psyche are paramount. Sawtooth waves, pinwheels, staircases, and portals in hard-edge geometric abstraction present deeply personal and spiritual works that serve as a fountain of healing for those who take the time to look.

About the Artist

Christopher Cascio was born in New Orleans, and lives and works in Houston. He received his BFA at the San Francisco Art Institute and MFA from the University of Houston. Over the past decade his art has dealt with themes of obsession, compulsion, and ritual practice. The work now primarily consists of hard-edge abstraction (paintings) and is influenced by traditional quilting designs. Color and its transformative effects on the human psyche are paramount. The paintings come from a spiritual place and serve as a fount of positive energy for those who take the time to look deeply. The act of painting is curative and creates an aura of healing around the work.


The work combines complex color theory and motifs based on traditional quilting patterns into painted geometric abstraction. Paintings are largely made using masking tape and aerosol acrylic paint. Some visual themes include sawtooth waves, portals, stairways, crosses, and pinwheels. Sometimes the paintings are also deconstructed and resewn into actual quilted paintings.


Cascio is an Assistant Professor of Studio Art at Sam Houston State University and part time consultant at the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, his alma mater in Houston. He is married, has a six-year-old, and cohabitates with two rescued tabby cats.


Artist Spotlight

How did you find your medium/mediums?


Drawing, and by extension, painting, have always come naturally to me. It’s something I constantly did as a child. Most people assume you are a painter when you tell them you are an artist, so choosing my medium wasn’t really a unique experience...
