Katie Stubblefield’s new wood cut prints, oil paintings, sculptures, and sight-specific installed projects explore order, chaos, and entropy. Her color-soaked oil paintings and value-based prints take visual cues from the natural resources used to complete her sculptural works and installed projects. Salvaged trees, rebar, concrete, discarded clothes, deconstructed architecture and disused vehicle parts are examples of the artist’s working materials that are interwoven, tangled and refigured in space. Stubblefield’s imagery is informed by site visits, forensic photography, first-hand accounts and evidence of changed/damaged/evolving environments.
