Katie Smith


ARTIST PROFILE

TEXTILE JUNKY & MATERIAL GIRL
Katie Smith’s textiles take inspiration from both the natural environment and their status as patterned, textured fabric. For Katie, the various colours and patterns of textiles are not simply aesthetically pleasing; they also serve a fundamental narrative component. The interwoven threads in textiles create a rich visual text, layered with personal experiences, memories, emotive associations, and the living environment. Her recent work is based on the configuration of shapes and deluge of saturated colour in the forests of West Auckland and how these are contrasted with the stark, synthetic forms of sub developments and strip –malls of the industrial areas in the region.

Katie studied at Goldsmiths College at the University of London and now lives in West Auckland. As well as running children’s workshops, she has also produced works for commissions, commercial productions, and conceptual installations.
