Shaun Cassidy studied sculpture at Norwich School of Art, UK and worked as a studio assistant for British sculptor Sir Anthony Caro. Cassidy finished his graduate studies in sculpture at the University of Alberta, Canada. He has exhibited at Socrates Sculpture Park, NY; Franconia Sculpture Park, MN; Forum for Contemporary Art in Saint Louis; and at the DeCordova Museum, MA. He has been awarded residencies at over 10 venues including The McDowell Colony, NH; Djerassi Resident Artists Program, CA; McColl Center for Visual Arts, NC; and Sculpture Space, NY. His work has been reviewed and featured in Art in America, New Art Examiner, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. Shaun Cassidy uses sculpture, public art, painting and drawing to capture moments in time and fragments of experience. Radiating both joy and sadness simultaneously, his work invites viewers to enter a state of nostalgia while reflecting upon the impossibility of making the present moment last.
