Kate V Robertson works in print, sculpture and installation, with a focus on materials and processes. She selects materials based on their associative connotations, often employing strategies of minimalism, Surrealism and conceptual art. Representational systems of technology, advertising and print media are all explored and tested by the materiality of Robertson’s work and the dysfunctional nature of her objects.
Her installations often play with tension and illusion – solid objects may appear yielding, or a rippling wall or cracked floor may suggest a collapse of ordinary systems and structures. The themes of failure and obsolescence are recurrent in her practice, even becoming intrinsic to her working processes. Bodies of work often become a conversation between specific and directly expressed concepts, and the fruits of accidents or experiments.
