Cassandra Eustace


Drawing makes light visible and while my work is underpinned by a variety of drawing processes it is the invisible that interests me. The interstice between what is real and what we perceive creates a space of unknown retreat. Freed from the dead end of patterned behaviours’ the kairotic moment can subvert the cultural mantra ‘doing is better than being’ and appearances need to adhere to a preferential hierarchy. What has been left out in the work, whether in the corruption of the drawn line, the transparency of the materials or the unfamiliarity of the objects, allows for a less defined sense of perception and the possibility of a meeting space between impermanence and revelation.

Eustace graduated in 2013 with her MA in Arts and Process from the Crawford College of Art and Design and BA First Class Hons degree in Fine Art from CCAD, 2012. Other awards at this time included The Barry Moloney Student of the year, and The Ciarán Langford Memorial Prize and CIT Artsfest Prize.
