The Digital Portfolio of Katrina Toft



There is a certain transformative power in taking a variety of contradictory images and objects and restructuring them in a way that gives them a whole new meaning. Through my artwork I seek to evoke certain symbolic memories or feelings of visiting an alternative reality. To express the distinct nature of this mysterious inner world, I like to use a combination of textures, colors, and objects that are layered together to create a narrative. Each piece is meant to represent a type of artifact that has a story of its own while still being connected to a larger whole. While this world is largely of my own imagination, it represents familiar themes of nature, culture and intrapersonal relationships collected and juxtaposed together.

Walks on the beach and finding the strange bits and pieces that wash up on shore inspire me greatly. The beach, much like my work, is constantly reshaping and reforming itself. The patterns of movement I find outdoors I try to bring into my own works of art to reflect the thoughts or problems I am dwelling on. It is important to me that even though I am conveying a viewpoint from my own perception, that it is relatable on some scale to others. I hope that they can see themselves in my work as well as enjoy these little personal dramas I put on display. I believe that my art, while connecting on an emotional level, should entertain, reflect some self-awareness, worldliness and include bit of ironic humor.
