Katherine Gailer

Originally from Colombia and currently working in Australia, Katherine Gailer creates imaginary landscapes exploring women, cultural identity and spaces of magical realism. She graduated with honours from a Bachelor of Fine Arts and completed an Arts Management Masters Degree– both at RMIT University. Her Practice incorporates painting, drawing and Graphic Design.

Gailer’s artistic expression underscores a main theme that looks at the complex relationship between fragility and strength, vulnerability and empowerment. Her artworks can be interpreted as a series of confronting tensions to articulate the essence of the Feminine as a force of relatedness in our world today. Her compositions call upon the wild woman, her connection to the land and honour the empowerment of a new contemporary female identity.

Rediscovering a sense of the sacred and revisiting our ancient past, embody the driving force for the development of her artworks.
