Personal space refers to a landscape in the mind. A place of wandering and of thoughts. Ideas unfolding themselves within marks and colours. This collection consists of works on paper, canvas and panel that blend drawing and painting practices. The washes and pours colours and language of the marks map out moments, memories, problems yet unsolved, and suddenly a world exists on the canvas.
Kassandra Klassen is a visual artist currently based out of Victoria, Canada. Her practice is based primarily in blending the practices of drawing and painting. She holds a BFA from Emily
Carr University of Art and Design and is currently represented by Sweetpea Gallery.

the fifty fifty arts collective is comprised of individuals living and working on unceded and occupied First Nations Territories, specifically the lands of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, as well as the W̱SÁNEĆ, Sc'ianew and T'Souke First Nations.
The programming space itself is situated on Songhees and Esquimalt Territory but engages with individuals and communities across Turtle Island.
As a collective we endeavor to deepen our own understandings of how we are implicated in the history and in the present ongoing project of settler colonialism. As members of the fifty fifty arts collective we continually responsibilize ourselves to the complex kind of space that is the fifty fifty which hosts and facilitates the dissemination of the ideas and work of others.
The entrance to the fifty fifty arts collective is wheelchair accessible, however, the door is not automatic and we have no washrooms on site. A more comprehensive statement regarding our accessibility is in progress, specific questions or requests regarding accessibility can be sent to [email protected]
