Kat Grow is a multidisciplinary artist from Sta. Rosa, Laguna. She graduated cum laude from the University of the Philippines, Diliman, with a Baccalaureate degree in Fine Arts, majored in Painting. She won the grand prize for the Shell National Students’ Art Competition in 2014 and participated in the Artery Mentorship Program in Artery Art Space, Cubao. She has joined several group exhibitions in galleries like Sining Kamalig, Erehwon Art Center, Kaida Contemporary, ArtInformal, and the NCCA gallery. Since 2016, she has many self-organized workshops for mainly watercolor painting. Her first solo exhibition, Terraforming Rituals, was mounted in April of 2019 at Galerie Stephanie in EDSA Shangri-La.
Kat’s work focuses on the traditional processes of creating materials used in art-making, from personally sourcing raw materials to creating artist tools, such as paint. Grinding and sifting raw materials and extracting pigments for artworks that speak about social issues, the economics of creation, identity, and spirituality, Kat’s practice comprises repetitive actions that parallel both the loud and quiet, unseen formations of the Earth and the spiritual being of the self.
The tool as the artwork, craft, and repetitive, laborious tasks as methods of creation ground her and her paintings in the present. Read our full interview with Kat here.
