Meandmyhands-Visual Art by Katharina Forster
two dimensional mixed media works (detail of Avalanche (red) 2017)
Found, colourful material, disposed of any function, are used in Katharinas work in the same way as other artists use pigments for paintings or stone and wood for sculptures. Through her unique combination of this discarded material she creates new forms and associations, asking the viewer to question the relationship between humans and their surrounding environment.
