Katrina Moorhead

Katrina Moorhead is a Houston-based artist who was recently awarded the prestigious 2007 Arthouse Texas Prize and included in the group exhibition The Nature of Things, which represented Northern Ireland in the 2005 Venice Biennale. Moorhead is known for her obsessive artistic practice, in which humble materials are taken to poetic ends in spellbinding sculptures and installations, as seen in her 2007 solo exhibition, A Thing Called Early Blur at the Blaffer Gallery of the University of Houston. For Tuesday Evenings, Moorhead shares such works and the thoughts and experiences behind them.
