Katrina Slavik

In my work, I construct landscapes using acrylic and collage. The work explores how people interact with natural and man-made environments. How do borders separate people from their environment and from one another? How do current colonialist and capitalist paradigms about land ownership differ from the relationships of our past? Today, even natural environments are affected by people, both subtly and profoundly. My landscape pieces explore themes of displacement, migration, and co- habitation between people, animals, and plants.
