BIO 

Katherine Wheeler is a Central Victorian artist, based in Castlemaine. Wheeler graduated from a bachelor of Fine arts,
Gold and silversmithing at RMIT in 2007, and previously a Diploma of fine arts at RMIT in 2003.

Wheeler’s work is influenced by her immediate surrondings (domestic and landscape), traditional crafts,  collection, marine life and marine habitiats, human influence on the natural world and life and death in the natural world.

Wheeler mainly makes sculptural jewellery, and hollowware that combine materials such as thin silver, porcelain, paper and thread. The works and  materials are often ‘camouflaged’ under white paint, to create a new skin for the forms which are anthrophomorphic, the white bleaches the forms leaving them with the appearance of  shell or bone.

Wheeler’s work has been shown in galleries such as Gallery Marzee, (The Netherlands), Objectspace (New Zealand) The Powerhouse Museum, Object Gallery, Craft Victoria (Australia), The National Gallery of Victoria (Australia), and has recently had a group of hollow ware works represented by Charon Kransen Arts at SOFA Chicago and SOFA New York.
Her work is represented in collections at Gallerie Marzee, (The Netherlands), and the W.E.McMillan Collection at RMIT, as well as private collections in Australia.
