Andrew Alcasid is a San Diego-based artist that is influenced by installation artist, James Turrell. He examines concepts of light and space within traditional two-dimensional methods with the goal of manipulating space through various planes of color.
"In a world of constant repetition and monotony, I crave the chaos of creation.I crave meaning in an otherwise meaningless space. In a perverse and masochistic way, I crave the commotion that shatters the silence of peace. When everyday is a cycle so simplistic that worth and perception is lost in self meditation, I crave the break in the chain that inspires the free flow of awareness. An empty space, a peaceful reprieve, a moment of complete and whole-hearted content;I crave the thoughts that splinter a filtered existence." -Andrew Alcasid
Alcasid's original prints will be on display at 1805 Gallery from Friday to Sunday, between 12pm and 5pm, until June 3rd, 2012.
