Jassie Rios

Jassie Rios is an intermedia artist based in Washington, D.C.. The scope of her inquiry is motivated by conceptual, experimental, and formal investigations in drawing involving experimental media, installation, language, sound and video. Jassie's most recent projects involve drawing and re-drawing the natural and artificial confluences found in the landscapes of everyday experience, emphasizing notations, improvisations, and recordings through diagrammatic representation of pattern sequences on both auditory and visual planes. She is currently exploring the human relationship with machines through improvisations with a gramophone and 78 rpm records. Rios’ work and installations have been exhibited throughout Texas, DC, Maryland and Virginia. Selected exhibitions include ‘Drawing from Non-Place’ at Meyerhoff Gallery in Baltimore, MD, ‘Drawing the Found Line’ at Artisphere, Rosslyn VA, ‘Consolidated Landscapes’ at Delicious Spectacle in Washington, D.C., ‘Call Collect’, Hamiltonian Gallery in Washington D.C., ‘Strange Magic’ at Guest Spot in Baltimore, MD, FLATS at Atlas, FLEX mobile gallery project, Washington, D.C. and (Re)activate, a public art exhibition in Washington, D.C. Collaborations with artists include Renee van der Stelt, Free [Space] Collective and Flex Artists. Jassie is a resident artist at Signal Culture in Owego, NY (2015) and her textual works are featured in Ditch, an archive for International Contemporary Poetry.
