KATIE LEE is an artist working in a wide range of disciplines and scales. She is a current Ph.D. Candidate at the VCA, University of Melbourne and she holds a Master of Visual Arts from RMIT University.
Her work ranges from large-scale architecturally sited installations to small whimsical ink drawings. A preoccupation with ‘the way things are’ is a common trait in her practice which manifests in her sculptural work as forms resembling familiar objects (furniture, tools, instruments) and the use of
materials such as hanging lengths of rubber, steel bars, ceramic balls and timber planks. Lee’s work finds a reflection of our built environment alongside their possible psychological and embodied affect.
Lee has exhibited widely, both in Australian and internationally. Exhibition highlights include: Inclinations, Sutton Gallery, 2014; Dreaming of a Technological Future, Margaret Lawrence Gallery, 2014; Collected Objects, Varied Materials, Shepparton Art Museum, 2013; and We Will Never Be Still, Dance Massive, 2013.
Currently, Lee teaches Expanded Studio Practice at RMIT University and Sculpture at the VCA University of Melbourne. She has served on the board of Conical Inc., Gertrude Contemporary and West Space.
