Profile

Katherine Groesbeck is from Seattle, Washington, USA. She received her MFA from the University of Washington. Katherine works in photography, video projections, installation and sculpture. She imbues humble objects with material that saturates the senses through smell, color and texture. Immersing, coating, and washing the objects; their presence becomes both sacrosanct and tainted.
