Mapping Space


Space, color, and shape drive my work.  I make painted paper collages based on observational drawings. I’m interested in capturing the truth of the moment, and my interaction with the space occupied by the figure.  Rather than having people pose for me, I prefer to watch them engaged in an activity.  When I approach a new subject, I make many gestural drawings and more drawings of the space in my sketchbook.  I construct my collages directly from the drawings.  In the absence of the subject, color and specificity become dictated by the needs of each composition according to space and contrast.  Negative and positive shapes are equivalent powers.  I build them up simultaneously (rather than laying down a ground first and working on top of it).  This allows the image to grow organically and meander around towards its eventual outer bounds.



Katie Knoeringer is originally from NJ.  She now lives and works in Kentucky and teaches drawing at Murray State University.
