Katie Aggett's work is inspired by architecture and the city, particularly the clash of quickly developing and compressed urban environments. Taking forms and materials inspired by the changing spaces we inhabit, it explores how scars of the city’s fabric capture traces of growth and change.

The history of drawing and its expansion into different fields in art is at the core of her research. This is referenced in her drawings, instillations and sculptures, which all relate to and question the materials, line, motion and traditions of drawing. The drawings often expands beyond the restraint of the paper and onto the surface of the gallery where it explores a reciprocity between drawn and sculptural form through material correspondence and composition in space. Charcoal lines and marks are left as reminders of where the weight and movement of the charred structures have been or moved. In contrast lines project and map the future development of the structures within the gallery space.
