Much of Katie’s work in recent years has been concerned with her birthplace – Zimbabwe. The ongoing political turmoil and the resulting human rights abuses have been the central core of her work. Her most recent work explores the occurrence of ‘diaspora’ and its implications. Mapping journeys & tracing the heartbreak of exile that thousands of people suffer worldwide due to political unrest & violence.
Africa’s diverse beauty and rich heritage are her powerful source of inspiration.
Her series entitled “Identity” stems from an upbringing in Africa and calls into question cultural stereotypes and preconceived notions of belonging. This series includes screen prints of traditional African imagery on traditional English prints such as wallpapers and lace curtains. Through this she engages her audience by immersing them into a fusion of cultures and challenging further debate on personal identity and what it means to “belong”.
