Katie Glaskin is a West Australian anthropologist, painter, and printmaker. As an undergraduate she studied art and anthropology, and as an anthropologist she has spent many years working with Kimberley Aboriginal people on their native title claims. These experiences have profoundly shaped how she thinks about history and place, and have influenced her use of landscape to explore and express emotional states.
Katie’s current work focuses on themes of loss and endangerment, extinction and de-extinction, themes that have been represented in recent solo exhibitions (2018, 2019) and group shows. Katie’s paintings and prints have found their way into private collections in Australia, Canada, France, Finland, Indonesia and New Zealand. Her prints have been collected by the Art Gallery of the University of Western Australia.
