Paintings by Reza Kassai
October 16, 2000
Reza Kassai describes his collection of paintings, "Random Thoughts",
as child-like drawings that represent "flash thoughts about illusions,
fantasies, dreams, the subconscious, social and political issues, history,
comedy, tragedy and personal experiences."
"'The main focus is to portray my feelings regarding various issues
at a particular time. Images stem from observations, news, conversations
with a neighbor or even the cognition and understanding of a five-year-old."
Reza Kassai migrated to the United States at the age of 17 and has lived
in southern California ever since.
