Patrick Cassar is an emerging South Australian artist who graduated from the Adelaide Central School of Art (ACSA) in 2020 with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours). Cassar is a founding member of Floating Goose Studios and has been selected as a finalist twice in the Kennedy Art Prize and semi-finalist in the Moran Portrait Prize in 2017. Since graduating honours in 2020 he has been involved in teaching workshops at Fringe events, Neo Teens at the Art Gallery of South Australia and ACSA Winter School.

In June of 2018 Cassar had his first solo show titled “Deep Focus” at the Floating Goose Studios.  This body of work was created by exploring the vast dimensions of dream theory and it’s interpreted symbolism within the state of delirium and lucidity. The work explored how the human mind attempts to make sense of our deepest feelings like joy, excitement or anxiety through creating unusual scenarios as we dream.
