Silk/Mulberry Paper Collages & "Wave" Paintings
(2000 – 2012)

Kass’ silk and water collages utilize flowing silk on layered mulberry papers as if it were a wash of watercolor. The diaphanous silk mimics the light-filtering ephemeral qualities of water. They share in the spirit of the collages made from found materials by Irwin Kremen. These elegant scraps of weathered and water stained papers were painstakingly collected as found objects and then assembled into intense collages with an intimate yet ambiguously vast scale, creating a dynamic that fills the room.
