The china shop's next door

Dorcas Casey certainly knows how to let sleeping bulls lie.

Shssssssush - don't wake him

In her own words she creates sculptures that appear to be both
uncanny and ambiguous.  For her the pieces she creates
embody a myriad of emotions and sensations,

Sitting down on the job

Dorcas is an obsessive collector hanging on to things which
might well come in handy one day when she will restore
them to life in another incarnation.  Using craft based processes
such as hand stitching and malleable materials like gloves,
socks and clothing fabrics she transforms them into her
figurative masterpieces.

Saddled up and ready to go

Dorcas has the ability to make marginal, discarded and
outmoded items return to centre stage as powerful presences.
She has a First Class BA Hons Fine Art: Sculpture from the
Winchester School of Art and also studied at the
University of Seville in Andulasia.

I wonder what these were in a former life?

  1. I don't know if you have ever watched the TV show Doctor Who, but those animal heads on the long robes are scary enough and remind me of the Weeping Angels of that show. They are the scariest creatures I have ever seen.
