kate lain is a Los Angeles–area multidisciplinary artist working in film, video, clay, and other media.
In her varied works, she plays with material, texture, traces, and movement and is interested in ways people understand and interact with nature. Her preoccupations include family, memory, gender, land, texture, color, and place. She is drawn to places where structures and materials break down.
She approaches her various practices as collaborations—with material properties, with objects, with sites, with natural and chemical processes, with weather and other conditions, with the elements of chance that arise from all of these. Intention and discovery are equally important to her process.
Colors may look a bit different in person due to lighting and computer/phone screen color variations.
