The challenge of working in different places is open to all kinds of possibilities. Cas Holmes has produced installations in a variety spaces from cathedrals to workplaces, military buildings to offices. Many of these projects are made in collaboration with other artists and community groups using everyday found materials which demand interaction.

Office workers moved their hand through ‘Red Rain’ From almost from the minute it was placed in the office space.The works were exhibited with Kings Hill Art with Arts and Business organised through Frickleton Fine Art
The six large panels, which made up an installation by Cas Holmes entitled ‘Imperfect Plants’, showed her use of found materials, paper, dye and stitch, to its best effect. The loosely-hung panels wavered in the draught, creating shimmering surfaces.Her interest in human impact on plants and the environment was taken into these textiles in a very sensitive manner, appealing to the emotions through delicate layers of flora.-oh for more room to show them all. Wowies will be familiar with the work of Cas Holmes’ she was at her best in this exhibition’
