Kate Piekutowski

Belonging is a term that can be employed infinitely. In its most generic form, it has often been associated with something or someone. However, particularly for my practice, it is what defines the connection between identity and place. As a first-generation child of Polish migrants, I constantly question, what does it mean to belong? In connection to my Polish diasporic experience, I use the historic medium of etching to create multi-layered etchings which explore the ideal of belonging and certain historical themes related to expatriation, homelessness and transnationalism. Through this questioned identity, the work, in tonality, technique and colour, accentuates a romantic notion of cultural hybridity and the merging of past and present perspectives.
I would like my works to enable my viewers to connect to the emotion of each piece, and to begin to reflect on their own identity.
