Sarah Casey is an artist and researcher. She makes drawings which test the limits of visibility and material existence. This practice reflects a fascination with the unseen, untouchable and unspoken.
Over the past decade she has taken drawing to a range of challenging environments, working alongside archaeologists, medical practitioners, cosmologists and conservators to see what the activity of drawing may share with these other practices that must negotiate the delicate to reveal the unseen.
Drawing is a means of exploring what it means to see, touch and feel experiences on the edge of our grasp. This has ranged from items of a dress collection which have been hidden away out of sight to cosmological exotica at the outer reaches of our universe.
