ABOUT THE ARTIST


 

Mia DelCasino is an east coast native and has always loved making photographs, drawing, writing and the entire creative process. After earning a Bachelor of Arts in Media Communications, she relocated to the west coast to pursue her artistic career.  Her work can now be found in many corporate and private collections worldwide.

In many of DelCasino's photographs, the natural elements such as water, light and the effect they have on structure over time represent the ever-changing aspects of life that we all face. The structural and static elements in her images are representative of the inner strength of our individual human spirit. Whether we are facing a personal struggle, a global war, or just the fast pace of everyday life, we find ourselves surrounded by elements of chaos. The work conveys a universal message that calm and chaos can co-exist in a harmony that is unique to every one of us.

DelCasino's goal is to communicate the contrast of old versus new, dark versus light and static versus motion by juxtaposing simplicity of structure and complexity of texture.  She is inspired to capture the two in their truest form and convey the critical balance between their opposing characteristics.  This balance along with her love for architecture, minimalism, clean lines and monochromatic hues create the essence of her work.
