Patricia Casey holds a strong interest in interior worlds and private spaces. Her subjects are caught in a moment of private reverie, veiled by elements of the natural world. The familiar is manipulated and transformed into a dreamlike tableau.
There are layers of ambiguity in these works, as beauty is contrasted with unease, we are uncertain as to whether the subjects gaze is inward or outward; they are watched or the watching; hidden or revealed.
Little Secrets is comprised of photographic montages embroidered with glittering threads that act as a flow of energy vibrating from the surface of the picture plane hinting at what may lie beneath the surface of these dreamlike images.
