Katrina Sánchez Standfield is an interdisciplinary Panamanian-American artist. Through fibers and mixed materials she makes vibrant and tactile objects and installations that examine the social and environmental networks in which we function. Kat pairs traditional processes like weaving and knitting, experimenting with texture, color, and scale to explore contemporary issues. The intersection in which we relate to ourselves, each other, and our environments is at the center of what inspires her work. She explores ideas of community, healing, and renewal through physical actions and methods like mending, street art, and interactive installations. Influenced by both the history of fibers and its intrinsic connection to humanity Kat likes creating work that invites the public to interact with it. A desire to elicit a multi-sensory experience while engaging the audience's desire to investigate and play is at the heart of her practice.
