Katrina Revenaugh reinterprets street art and graffiti through a digital collage process that starts with photography. She then extracts little bits and pieces from her shots and uses them like found objects to create layered abstract collages and patterns on wood, metal or fabric.
While traveling she seeks to immerse herself in some of the most visually chaotic, raw and brilliant environments. She will spend hours researching the street art scene of a particular city, mapping out stops and wandering into local haunts to inquire about the best (or the worst depending on one’s perspective) places to find new source material— a decaying wall, a section from a tagged tunnel floor or a small portion of rusty metal.
In the final work, the essence of the source material is still there, but has been completely reimagined by Revenaugh.
