Artist Statement

Born in Dallas, Texas, Katherine creates her own personal narrative within her work, making connections between her identity as a second generation Vietnamese American, and her early life within the lone star state. The decision to incorporate objects vary geographically, often incorporating omnipresent objects that appear in her day to day route, all while functioning as coexisting assemblages when in their final form. Her experience of the outsider’s perspective plays a significant role. For instance, it is feasible to make work concerning a specific place and time without being present. Memories and nostalgia eventually form a narrative that comments on the trials and tribulations of existing between multiple cultures.
