Kathy's practice 

reflects
 how 
she collects, collate
s objects/imagery and collaborates which define 
how 
her perception
 alters 
her 
unique 
perspective.

She examines 
colour, 
form, and
 line, which 
become
 abstract, 
often 
sculptural
 layers.


These 
layers 
help 
her 
to 
metaphorically 
conceptualise 
ideas 
and 
create 
reflections 
on 
the
 ever‐changing 
world 
of 
culture, 
society 
and 
technology.


By
 utilizing 
the 
abstract 
space 
between 
her 
body 
and
 the
 environment 
to 
create 
a
 unique
 perspective
 and 
pliable 
structure 
for 
intuition 
and
 opportunity.

These 
have 
become
 
methods 
for 
navigating 
the
 blurry 
terrain
 of 
memory 
and
 imagination,
 reflecting 
her 
view point 
of
 the
 world.


Kathy 
traces
 and
 retraces, 
drawing
 from
 O.S. 
maps
 and 
retraces 

paths 
through 
them.
 Mapping 
serves 
as 
a 
metaphor 
for 
searching,
 an
 implication 
of 
the 
unknown
 in
 wide,
 open spaces, paralleled with her personal confines, exploring these spaces in her research methodologies.
