Circumstantial Objects is an online art gallery, primarily leasing and selling original articles created by Gary and Josephine Cass. Our products include mixed media objects, collages, paintings, stock images and raw materials for art production.
Our primary focus is on the mixed media objects we call ‘circumstantial objects’ because of our guiding aesthetics philosophy that nearly everything gains beauty, character and uniqueness as it ages. Our experience has taught us the circumstances we find and use the materials in our works helps to create a state of appreciation and interest in our objects. We use random, unpredictable raw materials in their native, found condition. Our goal is to combine these discovered items in a circumstantial process to form an object that is a very interesting thing to look at.
Our ‘circumstantial objects’ are unconventional articles created to provoke a unique emotion each time a viewer contemplates its raw powers of beauty through the patina of time, adversity, oxidation, care, wear, tear, use, neglect, inattention and simply ‘being’ or existing.
