Artist Statement

Katie Wolf is a collage artist based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Her work explores how ripping, tearing, and cutting — actions we associate with destruction and ruin — create new relationships between materials. Collage preserves the decay of these found, often ephemeral, materials and rewards those who look closely in search of connections. With reference and reverence to art history and archival materials, Katie asks the viewer to consider how memory and nostalgia are often unreliable and why we feel compelled to preserve our own unique experiences.
