About Katarina Isaksson
Katarina Isaksson, born in Gothenburg, Sweden, and now living in rural upstate New York, has been creating and exhibiting her work nationally for the past 30 years. She is represented in private and public collections and her large scale work can viewed in permanent installations of art in public places. Her recent sculpture and drawings are a continuation of her interest in the juxtaposition of natural, fabricated and industrial forms.
The conceptual core of my work springs from my interest in the perception and juxtaposition of natural and fabricated forms, patterns and structures, and their relationship to human constructs and behavior. I am using industrial materials to create non-objective and/or architectural forms in combination with found forms from nature, either reproduced or actual.
Sometimes the pieces are created with a particular place/space/context in mind and sometimes they are autonomous. The titles are an important element in the work as they suggest a path toward a perspective.
