Biography

Kate Breckon

Katie Breckon is an artist, educator, and remote community arts worker originally from Pōneke, Wellington. For over a decade Breckon has been actively supporting arts and cultural heritage projects in remote communities of northwest Australia. Her artistic practice explores the complex and poetic connections between people and their surroundings, mainly focusing on the concept of place attachment which refers to the strong emotional connection individuals form with specific objects and locations, often based on their experiences, memories, and interactions with the environment. Breckon channels ideas primarily through expansive forms of drawing, printmaking, and photography including digital and historic analogue processes. Breckon holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Whanganui Quay School of the Arts, New Zealand and a Postgraduate Diploma in Visual Arts from the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne. Throughout her artistic journey, Breckon has received recognition for her work, being a recipient of various awards, such as the CCP Salon, Deakin University Photographic Award, and American Aperture Awards Best Still Life Award. Additionally, she has been a finalist in the Bowness Photography Prize.
