Katie Kameen

Katie is a pioneer in using found plastics and repurposing them in most ingenious ways,
prolonging their life and giving them a second chance. There is a charm and a playful component
to all her pieces. A ray of sunshine on any day!

In my work I combine colourful mid-century and used contemporary plastics to examine how
everyday materials can provide a space for self-expression. I create playful forms with highly
saturated colours to elevate common objects that have outlived their original functions, but
not their aesthetic potential. The recognisable objects in my work evoke memories linked with
materials and colour.
