Katie Armstrong (b. 1988) uses drawing, animation, poetry and performance to investigate the often invisible, unperceived ways that our personal histories influence the present. Mining her internal landscape of images, memories, and questions, she seeks human understanding that is felt, not thought. Armstrong is process-oriented, relying on analogue methods, repetitive action, improvisation and intuition to guide her hands and voice. She is searching for connection to herself and the world she inhabits.
