Artist's Statement

I create abstract, organic sculpture that explores the body, the home and the intersections between them. My current interests revolve around science, technology and the body, exploring ideas of embodiment, disease and subjectivity. Using form and material to consider the blurred boundaries between safety and danger, inside and outside, self and other, my work aims at a contemplative and visceral response.  What is inside us that we can really call our own? What protects us?

Katie Richardson is a Hadley artist who works in glass, steel and other materials. She creates sculpture and installation, as well as housewares and accessories through her business Blue Barn Studios.
