Artist Kate Collyer hopes that by focusing on the concept of place and the historical bond we have created with the landscape, viewers can empathize with the sites she reveals in her art. Her goal is to create prints within a variety of mediums and techniques to expand the definition of what a print can be. The work in this exhibition focuses on the arctic landscapes she has explored in Iceland, Greenland, and Svalbard, Norway. Each piece gives viewers the opportunity to interpret and reimagine, drawing insight from her recollections of place.
