Jake Cassevoy graduated with a BFA in printmaking from Montserrat college of art in 2011. His work has been exhibited at Rocky Neck Artist Colony in Cape Ann, MA and 17 Cox Gallery in Beverly, MA, as well as group shows Montserrat Alumni. His newest series (below) includes folk inspired animal woodblock prints and is currently in production. "BA KU," his previous series of works (above) depict grisly shadow puppet characters. Both series are on exhibit here at the Gallery at Chases in Prints & Pots, an exhibition of local printmaking and pottery. Of the printmaking processes Cassevoy uses he explains, "I like working on woodcuts and relief prints because of the technical skill involved... the process allows for a closer relationship to the work."
