Katie Kameen finds herself surrounded by potential art materials as she searches for objects that have been discarded and replaced. Kameen received her BFA in 3D Studio from Eastern Illinois University, and her MFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design from Indiana University in Bloomington Indiana. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including Galerie Marzee in Nijmegen, Netherlands, and Talente 2017 in Munich, Germany. Kameen is currently working and living in South Carolina.
My sculptures are the result of discovering life in objects that have outlived their intended functions. I am interested in the potential of everyday objects to communicate with us, through us, and to help us communicate with others. I draw from my own experiences, relationships, and emotional growth to find new ways to communicate with old materials.
