Series I

Created around Europe, these works depict sea, coast, land & city. Characterised by the transformation of found wooden structures, the series comprises over 400 pieces.

Series II

A selection of sea & skyscapes created in the studio. These works are concerned with the topic of sea rise and are made from mostly metal recycled items and objects.

Series III

This series of Arrangements has less emphasis on paint, and more on collage. These rearranged items & objects describe changing coastlines & sea surfaces, from an environmental perspective.


The above pages display David Cass’ main projects, formed exclusively from found materials. Since graduating in 2010, Cass has also dedicated time to smaller, research-based offshoots of these projects: currently, this includes As Coastline is to Ocean. Previously, his Pelàda series explored the plight of Venice and the Venetians; and his Florence project Perimetri Perduti, examined the contemporary significance of the city’s devastating 1966 flood.
