Katie Reynolds is a Printmaker and Educator. Her work is a personal inquiry, featuring imagery of herself and her young sister. She begins with photography as a form of visual research, which evolves to form etchings, digital collages and 3D forms.
This collection of work aims to depict how we form as individuals and how the individual grows in response to their surroundings. Learning our behaviours and ways of being from our elders and the environment in which we mature. The artist’s experience of encountering a reflection of herself in a younger sibling evoked an awareness of this influence. Her work utilises the motifs of daisy chains and the rings of trees as symbolism, of both fragility and the strength of nature, adapting and growing in response to its environment to thrive. The organic forms are intended as visual representations of her thoughts on the parallels between this occurrence in nature and in children.
