Katie Grinnan is an artist living and working in Los Angeles. She shows at ACME. gallery in Los Angeles and has exhibited at the Whitney Museum in New York, MOCA in Los Angeles, and Modern Art Oxford in the UK.
Her work has always been concerned with hybrid techniques, approaching sculpture from the perspective of the expanded field. For many years she has been working with photographic imagery in her sculptures. Photography has served as a way to make ‘site’ a portable material.
Combining photography and sculpture has been a way for social, psychological, imagined, physical, and visual space to exist simultaneously while spotlighting the incongruities between the structure and surface of an object.
