With a strong belief in the significance of genuine impulse, Katherine Maxwell's artistic principles focus on the use of internal triggers - a thought, a flavor, an emotion - to spurn motion throughout the body.
Maxwell takes as a starting point the foundational belief that all humans are inextricably interconnected. Given this, how can we learn to acknowledge the contingent nature of human life, and affect it for the better? By encouraging and displaying vulnerability, empathy, humor, joy and difficulty, Maxwell believes that by tuning in to oneself, allowing oneself to feel and experience sensation – whether emotional, physical or spiritual – we become softer creatures more capable of accessing compassion and understanding.
