Kat Sours is a New York-based artist who connects physical and emotional feelings through textiles. Kat combines traditional textile practices like knitting and embroidery with unconventional mediums, such as latex, rubbers and vinyl. She is constantly pushing the limits of materiality and considers herself and her practice to be that of a scientist experimenting in a lab. She desires an understanding of how texture and form can evoke a psychological response. She seeks to create textiles so visceral they can almost be felt with the eyes. Sours investigates connections between the physical and psychological, considering how feelings, memories and words can be experienced through tactility, form and color.
