Katrina Sánchez

Katrina Sánchez is a Panamanian-American artist working with fibers and mixed materials to create vibrant and tactile works that explore ideas of play, community, healing and renewal. Originally derived from her process of mending clothes with needle and thread, her current body of work is an exploration of thread-like magnified linear forms. Her Magnified weavings are made by knitting long tubes that are stuffed and then woven together. Weaving these elements under and over each other amplifies the round plushy volume and its playful qualities. Evoking a desire to touch and play, these forms create a collective sense of intimacy, warmth and joy and optimism.
