Katrin Straub is an artist and graphic designer with an MFA in media science whose work has been awarded and exhibited worldwide. Centered on letter-forms and symbols, her work makes use of relief and collage-like techniques to evoke a tactile response not usually associated with text and typography.
“Often I start out with a letter, word, phrase or text fragment and create my story around it…
I am fascinated by the visual forms in text, particularly where the meaning is enigmatic or ambiguous. My work challenges the common perception of written language, focusing on the contours and shapes of characters, symbols, and text fragments rather than their overt content—inviting or even compelling the viewer to make her own interpretation.”
Her work in painting, print and multimedia has been awarded and exhibited worldwide.
