2021 Spring Exhibition > Katherine Voska

Of all the senses, touch has the most importance to me. I like to feel, hold, poke, and prod at everything and anything. The different surfaces and materials I confront elicit an emotional reaction to then form the inspiration for each of my projects. I utilize metal, ceramic, and printmaking materials in order to connect to my sense of touch. My practice is centered on learning traditional techniques and embracing those skills in my own work. Working with different materials dictates the way I handle each work of art. My intentions are to emphasize the medium I am using and let it lead my thought process. The colors I choose compliment the spatial relationships of the forms; bold colors to highlight, and muted ones to conceal. My work focuses on how the colors of different forms affect one another. Ranging in a wide range of scale, my work highlights the contrast between organic and geometric shapes that result in layered and dynamic structural compositions. My work shows a sense of control with color, texture, and form, balancing between dualities such as hot and cold, life and death, fluid and rigid. I take inspiration from Georgia O’Keefe’s use of form and line as well as the colors used in the works of Joseph Albers. My heritage as a Japanese-American is a catalyst for themes in my art such as identity, relationships, and culture. The versatility of my works and composition aim to create a pleasant experience for the viewer, no matter the media.
