Kate Steciw (born 1978 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) is a Contemporary artist working in Brooklyn, New York who uses sculpture, photography, video, and image manipulation in her artwork. She attended Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts where she obtained her undergraduate degree in Sociology and Political Science. She then attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she received her Masters of Fine Arts in Photography.
Kate Steciw’s sculptures, video installations, and photographs have been associated with the post-internet movement and are inspired by events in popular culture. Her digital photographic collages interrogate the relationship between reality and virtual representation, splicing together a disparate group of objects that mirror how internet is consumed; the images, taken out of their commercial context, are reimagined as contemporary abstract mosaics. Steciw aims to make photographs that “move beyond the 2D and exist in 3 and even 4D spaces or implied spaces but also juxtapos[e] the mundane or expected with the altered or intangible,” as she has said.
