Lives and works in Vancouver, BC
Katherine Duclos is a predominantly material-based artist, responding to objects she collects and has on-hand such as natural objects found in the woods or on beaches, studio materials like scraps or peelings of hardened paint from her palette, and materials collected from other people. Katherine is interested in transforming what she finds, creating work that lives between the abstract and the figurative. She considers her work successful when she creates something simultaneously evocative of the familiar and curious enough to provoke the question, “what is it?”. Katherine is open to the multiple potential interpretations of her work and she hopes to inspire curiosity and imagination while animating and bringing familiar associations to the unfamiliar and abstract, making it accessible to everyone.
