Katie Torn’s digital work Vacation (2013), a 12 minute loop, is a sculptural “video painting” in a permanent animated state of flux. The artist was inspired by the abstract expressionist David Smith. The latter created geometric works that are a hybrid of painting and sculpture and reference a picture plane despite their three dimensionality. Vacation was constructed using both sculptural and pictorial elements modelled in a virtual 3D space. The object on display - reminiscent of an abstract hyperreal vacation home - transforms in relation to the rectangle of the work’s frame, the surrounding screen, much like a painting. Torn, quoting David Smith: “I do not recognise the limits where painting ends and sculpture begins.”

Katie Torn lives and works in New York City.
