Katherine Spinella (b. 1985) transports the refuse of commerce into fractured, elevated, and philosophically personified artifacts through the use of printmaking, sculpture, and photography. Looking at representations of the natural world and discarded byproducts, she explores the fallacy of our perception of human dominance and mastery over the natural world. She received her MFA in Studio Art with an emphasis in Printmaking and Installation from the University of Oregon. Currently adjuncting and collecting trash in Portland, Oregon.
