Zina Katz (*1956, Buenos Aires). Studied painting under Kenneth Kemble, in whose workshop she was also a teacher. Studied drawing and sculpture under Aurelio Macchi.
Since 2003, her work is focused on embroidery. Her embroidered works reflects an analysis of relationshipa, as well as individual and social experience. Her trademark is to expose the hidden backside of an embroidered pattern: the opposite side of the clear cut image, showing the rough side of the stitching, often messy and interweaved, and exposing the ties among the different persons represented.
Zina’s work has been displayed locally and internationally in several galleries in Buenos Aires (Arg.), Salta Museum of Modren Art , macSA (Arg.), La Plata Museum of Modern Art, MACLA (Arg.), Panama City (Panama), Bogota (Colombia), Porto Alegre (Brazil), San Pablo (Brazil) and Miami and Paris (France). Amongst her most recent accomplishments, she has received the Gran Premio from the National Visual Arts Salon, textiles division and an Honorable Mention from the Eduardo Sivori Municipal Tapestry Salon.
Zina resides and Works in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
