Casper’s wall hangings arise out of backdrops for a sitter - these props have come to the foreground, overshadowing the sitter and becoming the primary focus.

Fabric is dyed with watercolor then the cotton is manipulated and painted upon, creating patterns and baring all the evidence of construction. Subtle plays with colour and composition are present but almost undermined by the casual draping of the fabric.

The titles of Casper’s work help the viewer decipher the initial impetus for the work; names of a sitter the only vestige from the past practice.
