Kate Drewniak

Kate Drewniak’s work explores the translation of memories into tangible objects, combining discarded found materials such as fabric remnants, books, and obsolete blueprints, to realize unique collages and installations. Through her process, Drewniak strives to preserve the history of the materials while embracing their entropic nature. “These pieces mimic the inherent nature of memory­... strands of thread will move, colors will fade, and sewn paper becomes delicate. I find beauty in evidence of decay, like rust and brittle paper.”
Deconstructing her materials and sewing them back together, she creates new objects based on intuition rather than measurements and calculations. These tenuous structures give these materials a renewed purpose; creating a testament to the histories they hold.
Drewniak received her BFA in Painting from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2010 and currently lives and works in Boston, MA.
