From Haslingden to Venice Beach, Los Angeles

We are so pleased we followed up an enquiry from Venice Beach, Los Angeles, California to supply some of our steel security doors and screens at first we thought it was all about security little did we know we would be collaborating a little to part of an art installation we weren’t even sure who Philip Zach & Jacob Kassey were !

A little about these guys which speaks for its self below:-

Jacob Kassey has experienced the kind of career problems most young artists can only dream of. In a short New Yorker profile in 2011 Kassay, then 27 years old, was described as “the art world’s newest star,” having found fame with his beautiful, silver-coated paintings, which Kassay created with the help of a Pennsylvanian chemical firm that specialized in electroplating, coating each canvas with a layer of metal just “atoms thick.”

Through this simple process Kassay created uncannily engaging works that demand repeated viewing, as if the artist, as we put it in our book Vitamin P2, “is teaching us to look more closely, not just at his paintings but also at the historical lineage to which they belong.”
