Mining the Recycle Bin | A SCRIPT conversation with Artist Katherine Spinella
Join us at SCRIPT as we interview our first artist Katherine Spinella. Her work often finds the beauty of objects discarded. Both physical and digital, we will discuss the methods she utilizes in her art practice when mining for content. We will also discuss how artist's practices have shifted with the endless potential of search sources such as Google.
Katherine Spinella is an artist living and working in Portland, Oregon. Her studio practice explores the fallacy of human dominance and mastery over the natural world, while transporting the refuse of commerce into fractures, elevated, and philosophically personified artifacts. As a habitual collector of discarded physical and digital commodities, she uses printmaking, sculpture, and digital images as a means of archiving and deconstructing commonplace objects and materials in search of their embedded ideological meaning.
Spinella has recently exhibited in Portland, OR at Littman + White Gallery, Carnation Contemporary, and One Grand Gallery and in Los Angeles, CA at Outback Arthouse. Additionally, she has exhibited at Musée de Charmey in Charmey, Switzerland and Disjecta Contemporary Art Center and Portland Art Museum in Portland, OR. Her work has recently been published in the Endless Editions 2018 Biennial Catalog Project in NYC and Peripheral Vision Journal No. 7 based in Dallas, TX. She has received grant support from the Ford Family Foundation and Oregon Arts Commission and attended residencies at Vermont Studio Center, Kala Art Institute, and Women's Studio Workshop. Spinella is an MFA graduate from the University of Oregon 2013 cohort. She is currently a faculty member at Portland State University, Oregon State University, Linn-Benton Community College and MFA Mentor at Oregon College of Art and Craft.
