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. Deconstructing her materials and sewing them back together, she creates new objects based on intuition rather than measurements and calculations. 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.

“My work is about translating memories into tangible objects. I combine found materials that are often discarded like fabric remnants, books, and obsolete blueprints to make collages and installations. I want to preserve the history these materials contain 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. By ripping apart documents and sewing them back together, I am creating new objects based on intuition and emotion instead of measurements and calculations. These tenuous structures give these materials a renewed purpose; creating a testament to the histories they hold.” - Kate Drewniak
