Katie Kaplan is a visual artist born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, currently living and working in Philadelphia. In her current multi-disciplinary practice, she has a focus on exploring printmaking at the intersection of sculpture, installation, fiber arts, photography and video. Her current focus in printmaking is creating a personal language of symbols that draw from mythology, art history, western esotericism, religious iconography, girl culture, herbalism and plant folklore, all reimagined through personal narrative and a queer femme lens. Katie worked in the Pittsburgh-based Justseeds office from early 2014 until January 2016.
Taring Padi is a community of artists formed in 1998 during the general upheaval following the fall of Suharto.
