“Working with installation and sculptural form, Katie Lee’s practice is an exploration of the physical and psychological affect of the everyday and embodied experience.  Her materials — timber, rubber, steel, interrupted space, light, video, performative gesture, repetition, resistance, elasticity, fixed form — are the basis of her spatial practice” – Jan Bryant

The images in Working/Drawings are not plans or sketch designs.  They are much less certain investigations into density, materiality, scale and interior space.  They are refrains­, ink flows and pools and tells me if it is rubber, timber or steel.  The drawings are often far more whimsical and shaky than the material practice, and it is often from this uncertainty that my formal work emerges.
