Kathryn Poole 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. 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 through drawings, etchings and lithographs. Her drawings are her attempt at preserving a remnant of a life that was lost. She is currently one of the artists selected to exhibit at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery in Preston in a joint drawing project between the Harris and the Courtauld Gallery where she explored the former Courtauld factory site through the animals that have reclaimed the land. 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 as the Intaglio and Lithography technician.
