Katherine Sicotte started her career in the 1980’s. Her work is directly inspired by our Canadian landscape. As a mature artist, her life and work has largely been affected by our country’s global awareness. The problems and realities of the world’s cultures, especially how our contemporary society affects women, are where her interest mainly lies. As a sculptor, her main interest has always been in making aesthetically pleasing objects. This belief incorporates not only formal notions of what is inherent to sculpture but acts as a reflection of contemporary society.
The Art Gallery of Alberta respectfully acknowledges that we are located in Treaty 6 Territory and Region 4 of the Metis Nation of Alberta. We respect this as the traditional and contemporary land of diverse Indigenous Peoples including the Plains Cree, Woodland Cree, Beaver Cree, Nitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Anishinaabe/Saulteaux/Ojibwe and Dene Peoples. We also acknowledge the many Indigenous, Inuit and Métis people who make Alberta their home today.
