Kat Geng’s sculptures and installations are an investigation of the ideas surrounding home using found objects and paint. Her playful environments and colorful assemblages stem from her peripatetic life spanning the last decade. The work reflects the careful consideration,consequences and adaptations required for a life in flux. Geng’s interest in home has expanded to include the re-imagination of private spaces and the exploration of the connection that our surroundings have to our behavior. Her most recent works address reoccurring themes of attachment, intimacy and suffering through shared experience and viewer interaction.
