About the Artist
Cassandra Dove is a Canberra artist who found her way back to art after a 20-year career as a clinical social worker. She finds inspiration in the landscape and is drawn to abstraction and mixed media. Her recent work involves reconstructing her lived experience of traveling in Japan as guided by her memory of the colours, textures and feelings she experienced whilst there. Her creative process is fuelled by a sense of curiosity and adventure and each year brings a new evolution of painting as she follows different paths within subject matter and style. Texture, gestural brushstrokes and mark-making can be seen throughout Cassandra’s work and are some of her favourite parts of the painting process. Cassandra works from her studio at Gorman Arts Centre as a recipient of the Emerging Artist Residency Programme.
