Born in 1981 in Hamilton, ON, Roy Caussy received his BFA in 2006 from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University (NSCAD) in Halifax, NS. In 2015, he completed his MFA in Studio Arts from the University of Lethbridge. Caussy has exhibited across Canada and has received numerous grants, including a project grant from The Canada Council for the Arts, and has attended residencies in Ontario, British Columbia, and Alberta, including a thematic residency at The Banff Centre for the Arts, in 2010.
In the last couple of years I have returned to a studio practice focused on object making; a process that I have not fully involved myself in since 2007 having spent the last eight years pursuing an action driven, non-studio dependent practice. The objects Iam currently making are involved in material transformations, questions on labour, and the application of older technologies. Thoughts on my personal history, and ideas on the work of the individual in relation to institutions, inform my process. Through an intuitive studio practice, I bring these orbiting ideas into alignment, as drawings and sculptures.
