HADAR, KATHERINE

Assistant Professor

FACULTY

Biography

Katie creates visual imagery related to time and ownership. She uses charcoal, ink, film and words to create stories; light and narrative trajectory through digital delivery. Katie’s films have premiered at Sun Valley and New Orleans. Her work explores memory, texture, place, family, destruction and reemergence.

Native to the Western United States, Katherine watches human and place interactions: the rapid rise and fall of resource collection, the replacement and the slow, grudging contracts between humans and wide-open, wild spaces. Her images frequently reflect the desire to stake out a claim of one’s own, through artificial light, heavy industry and fences. Katie’s work reflects questions between ownership and stewardship, poverty and profit, a rift between respect and fear, iron and sand, colossal failure and divergent definitions of success.
