Kathryn Yancey Artist Bio

Kathryn Yancey (b. 1985, Peoria, IL) is an artist living and working in Portland, Oregon, generating mainly video and installation work through a multi-disciplinary practice that explores the materiality of the poetic voice. It is a reflection inwards that is most critical, the mining of an inner state of being and how the representational world that can be seen, how the expression of a personal voice or feeling can be translated through various technological formats. This is often felt as failure, the failure to communicate, to bring these thoughts into the physical world. Kathryn Yancey attended The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (BFA 2009) and is currently pursuing an MFA in Contemporary Art Practice at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon.
