As a mixed media artist, Katherine Batchelor works predominantly with objects - found and created. Objects are loaded with histories, they contain traces of residual emotions and symbolism. Growing up in post-war New Zealand, Katherine lived with objects that were hand-made, and the craft involved in this was valued.
Katherineenjoys combining a variety of materials in her art, exploring the differences in their material languages. Katherine believes that through installation and assemblage, the juxtaposition of created and found objects can portray a sense of human interaction and emotional response more effectively than through spoken word.
