Kathryn Poole graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a Masters in Fine Art: Site and Archive intervention in 2016 and now works in the Artlab Contemporary Printmaking Studios in UCLan as the Intaglio and Lithography technician.
Her practice attempts to capture and illustrate memories. Focusing on documenting the loss and death that occur in unnoticed places, she memorialises dead animals found in her commute between Preston and Southport with drawings, etchings and lithographs. Her drawings are her attempt at preserving a remnant of a life that was lost through detailed observation.
She is interested in dissecting the boundaries between life and death, and how one sustains the other. In her drawings, prints and animations there is always a remnant of life glimpsed through the frame of the corpse.
