¡Katie B Funk! - Columbus Open Studio & Stage

Welcome!

Part of the 400 Square family, 400 W. Rich is a group studio site where you will find 12 COSS artists in 10 separate studio spaces. You can park on the street (all spaces are at this time unmetered), in the gravel lot on Lucas and Rich (free), or the parking structure behind River & Rich off McDowell (small fee). To enter, walk east on Rich to the open gated lot just before the railroad bridge, and walk toward the back of that space (follow signs) to the garage door entrance. There you will be greeted by a volunteer with a map of the COSS participating studios within 400. Do NOT use the brightly colored doors on Lucas—those are secure doors for artists only. Be sure the visit my fellow 400 Square artists while you’re here!

Bio

¡Katie B Funk! is an artist and writer who blends multiple practices within her work. In 2012, she received her BFA at Saint Mary’s College in northern Indiana, and her MFA at Columbus College of Art & Design (CCAD) in May of 2018. Her work often involves drawing, speaking, shifting, inhabiting, investigating, printing, assembling, collaging, questioning and dismantling. In August of 2018, she began teaching at CCAD in the CORE Studies Department, teaching drawing.

Statement

By peering through an investigative lens, my studio practice aims to find new ways to construct via deconstruction itself, allowing the mercurial space for static work to come alive and live work to stand still. I like to explore questions like: What does someone constructing an image via its deconstruction lose and gain? What are the boundaries of a collage?

Demonstration

I plan to demonstrate performative collage making through unmaking by exploring the limitations of collage if the possibility of creating one is in and of itself boundless.
