The Presence of Absence

MadArt is excited to welcome Seattle-based artist Katie Miller to the studio this summer. Miller’s site-specific installation of sculptural forms, including a labyrinth of cut paper, will envelop visitors in light and shadow. Layers of coalescing lines and latticed structures will create an immersive environment referencing the changing urban landscape.

Katie Miller was born and raised in the pristine wilderness of Northeastern Minnesota, but is now deeply rooted in the Pacific Northwest. As an interdisciplinary artist, Miller creates immersive installations often with a participatory element. She received her BFA from the University of Washington and her MFA from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University. Her work has been collected and exhibited nationally, with recent solo exhibitions at Gallery 4Culture and METHOD Gallery in Seattle, Washington and group exhibitions at the Bellevue Arts Museum in Bellevue, Washington and Temple Contemporary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Miller has been selected for numerous artist residency programs including the Montello Foundation, Bullseye Glass Resource Center, Art Farm, Anderson Ranch, and Sculpture Space.
