Graciela Cassel’s Interview in the Huffington Post by Jacqueline Bishop

Argentinian American Artist, Graciela Cassel, Utilizes Art as a Means of Discovery

Jacqueline Bishop
Author, Artist, NYU Professor

For Graciela Cassel, the labyrinth that is now an integral part of her art is a metaphor for life. “There is, with the labyrinth, a way in and a way out, but you can go down so many pathways. I am enamored with labyrinths, riddles and puzzles.”

Graciela Cassel was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and reports having a wonderful childhood. She has a younger sister, an architect, who has remained in Argentina, unlike Graciela, who now makes New York her home. Cassel believes that her curiosity and creativity as an artist come from having a father who was a chemist who was always investigating things. “My father built a factory and all the family was involved in his investigations.”
