Dorcas Casey

All Artists Gallery

Dorcas is a 2011 graduate from Winchester Art College, where she was awarded a first class honours degree in sculpture. She uses a variety of materials including fabric, wire and found objects to create her at times startlingly realistic and unsettling portrayals of animals and birds.
Talking about one of her recent sculptures: a life size pig made from textiles, wood and found objects.
Dorcas says, “I intend the pig to appear simultaneously familiar, tactile and comforting and conversely grotesque and menacing.” “I am fascinated by the ambiguity of dream images, especially the potent and at times unsettling symbolism of animals.”
