Patricia Casey is a visual artist from Australia who stayed with us for one month in June 2017. She has been a praticing artist since 1999, and has taken part in a number of group and solo exhibitions, at home and internationally, throughout her career. Patricia’s work considers an ongoing exploration of the themes of memory, dreams and imagination.

Here at the factory, Patricia has been inspired by the lines in the Icelandic landscape, and the ever-present and definitive line that appears in matter which has been formed together, and has split apart (seen within Patricia´s photographic research of rocks in the landscape). From this, a water colour study was inspired, and combined with mixed media in the form of embroidery, in recreating and highlighting the importance of these natural and domanant lines.

As her main artistic medium, photography has formed a basis for Patricias residency here in Stöðvarfjörður, beautifully capturing the mist and the diversity of the nature. Drawing upon Merleau Ponty´s ´Lived Body´, and the personal relationship with the world, the Fish Factory has given Patricia the opportunity to slow down, and approach her study through thoughtful and encouraged connection with the landscape.
