Catalina Renjifo's ongoing practice encompasses experimental sculpture, drawing and photography. Her pieces play with the conventional roles of materials to allude to notions of comfort, habits of consumption, waste and identity. Catalina's artistic practice weaves between traditionally domestic methods and contemporary art practices.
The sculptural pieces explore themes of intimacy and maintain a dialogue with the scale, sites and experience of the human body. Catalina's visual work stems from documenting her making process and aims to capture the tenuous relationship that bestows an object with purpose.
Catalina Renjifo obtained an MFA in sculpture and printmaking at Universidad Nacional de Colombia. In the past 15 years she has worked with artists, photographers and bookbinders, moved to Europe and raised her two children. Catalina collaborates with teachers and art enthusiasts to widen access to art for schoolchildren and is now undertaking the third year of a Master in Art Education at Oxford Brookes University. In the past few years Catalina has been focusing in advancing her career as a professional artist in the UK.
