Katie Jane Vickers - Heritage

Saturday 13th– Sunday 28th April
10am-5pm weekends only

Katie's mixed media pieces focus on her childhood memories of the landscape in her local area, in particular the Black Mountain in the Brecon Beacons.

Katie produces mixed media assemblages which include found objects and materials associated with the landscape such as clay, plaster and stone, along with charcoal, chalk, ink and paint. This technique incorporates the history of place and has resulted in a series of work with a deep connection to the landscape itself.

Working in Herbert’s Quarry on The Black Mountain, she has created work with soil, stone, discarded metals and industrial implements that have been left in the landscape. Over the years these objects have been battered by harsh weather, hidden away and slowly been reclaimed by nature itself, giving them a history of their own. The work is then placed back into the landscape and photographed.

is based in Tairgwaith and is currently a post-graduate student at Trinity Saint David, Carmarthen, studying fine art. Her
work was included in Welsh Artist of the Year exhibition in 2012.
