Katie McColgan

I explore material in response to my relationships with spaces and objects. Through the visual organization of memories and feelings, I create my own understanding of these relationships. Small objects are used as character stand-ins for the body, the feeling, the thing, and different combinations of these. In rearranging objects in space, I wrangle the intangible into something tactile. By contextualizing the work in familiarity, I use the almost to encourage the viewer to create their own understanding of the relationships situated within the work. Through the attachment of charms, which tend to be miniaturized souvenirs of a moment or feeling, I invite the viewer in close for an intimate experience. Driven by my memories, I solidify emotions, often within the permanence of clay. I acknowledge that an object will only ever go so far as to nudge these sharp memories back up into fleeting feelings, which are always quick to soften.
