Shifting Perspectives investigates the rapidly changing built environment and how our sense of place is informed by our surroundings. Utilizing forced-perspective, shifts in scale, and varied linear repetition, Miller distills the lines, angles, and forms revealed through the building process into cut paper installations. The imagery depicted as void and layered or segmented and then reanimated with light and shadow expresses the ephemeral nature of our contemporary urban environments.
As a multidisciplinary artist, Katie Miller creates site specific sculptural installations often with a participatory element. Her artistic practice embodies experimentation, observation, and research to establish an environment in which viewers can relate to and reflect on their surroundings. Miller’s practice has been supported by 4Culture, Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, MadArt Studio, Artist Trust, Montello Foundation, Art Farm, Bullseye Glass, and Pratt Fine Arts Center. Her work has been collected and exhibited nationally, with recent exhibitions at MadArt Studio, Gallery 4Culture, and METHOD Gallery; as well as group exhibitions at Bellevue Arts Museum in the Seattle area. Miller has been selected for numerous artist residency programs and fellowships. Originally from the backwoods of Northeastern Minnesota, Katie Miller is deeply rooted in the Pacific Northwest. She received a BFA from the University of Washington and an MFA from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia.
This exhibition was supported, in part, by a grant from 4Culture.
