You may not know artist Katrin Davis by name, but you've definitely seen her work around Denver. The artist's collages have been used on posters and fliers for shows for years, pieces that incorporate vintage photographs with vibrant, retro-feeling colors like turquoise and coral. Late last year, Davis moved into the three-dimensional realm of dioramas, incorporating her throwback aesthetic into miniature worlds created through assembling model train pieces together with beads and other objects. As part of show opening tonight at the new artist-run space DATELINE, Davis will be showing Hypotheticals
, forty of her dioramas, alongside the work of other local and national artists.
In advance of the opening, Westword spoke with about Davis about her change in medium and how she sources the pieces for work she says is inspired by "the past's concepts of the future."
