Shared Lines: Pūtahitanga exhibiting artist
Clawed Beast (2020) mixed media on board
Katie is a mostly self-taught artist developing her practice using relief print and collage. She seeks to create sensitive works that reveal the relationships between the natural world and our human interventions.
With recent work I have been mapping and questioning my own drive to make art with explorations of composition and colour.
Shared Lines: Pūtahitanga 2020

Population density makes our species vulnerable to infections but our ancient biology depends on physical and emotional connections with other humans for good mental health. Chains speak of the deep connection we have with the natural world, and this is the lifeline we must grasp to bring about change.
