Kate Kato

How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

Sculptor, Paper Artist

I try to capture the delicate detail and beauty of nature using recycled paper, fabric and wire. I’m very much influenced by plants, insects and found objects, from which I create intricate, life-sized sculptures and arrange them into collections and dioramas. I have always been fascinated by the natural world and for me my work is very nostalgic, taking me back to my childhood and the curiosity that fuelled my creativity. I like to encourage curiosity and promote an awareness of the environment. I want to bring the small, hidden and overlooked details into the public eye and encourage people to consider their importance.
