Katie Stackhouse’s work examines notions of time, landscape and contemporary human interaction with specific sites and natural environments. Recent sculptural and performance works refer to emerging experiential technologies, ceremony and materiality. Her work encompasses sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, photography, video and performance. Using stone and other minerals as a means to combine elements of the past with the present, Katie combines beeswax, gold, plaster and clay to give conceptual context to object and performance based work.
After completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts Katie studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Art Academy in the Netherlands. She has had several solo exhibitions and shown work in curated group exhibitions. Katie is the recipient of multiple grants through Regional Arts Australia and has completed a residency at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in the USA. Her work is included in private collections throughout Australia, Europe, Japan and the USA.
Katie is currently completing a Masters Degree at the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne.
