Katia Bulbenko is an interdisciplinary artist working at the intersection of painting and sculpture, who has exhibited work locally, nationally and internationally. Her abstract constructions, related to nature and landscape, are studies in composition and layering as well as a reflection of her inner life, becoming their own realms. Katia's pieces are influenced by eroded objects, fragments and relics. After completing her BFA in printmaking at Tyler School of Art, Katia discovered silk painting and created textile designs for women's apparel. Many of her painted silk pieces have found their way into her layered assemblages, which may also include upcycled materials, wood, canvas, paper, felt, and beads.
