Kathryn Johnson

Title: Goodbye England's Rose, 2009

Kathryn Johnson is an artist living and working in Newcastle, she works mainly with sculpture and installation, making realistic copies of undervalued or disregarded things. The resulting sculptural forms are made from the manipulation of a wide range of readily available materials sometimes encompassing found objects. Their staging is given a heightened sense of drama due to alterations of form, scale or unexpected placements.
