In the wake of the 2019/20 bushfires, Katherine Boland was selected as one of ten artists - six from Australia and four from the United States, to participate in OUTPUT: ART AFTER FIRE  - a pilot project funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade through their Australian Cultural Diplomacy Grants Program. This project supported fire-affected communities in southeast NSW and the American west by assisting visual artists and creative writers, whose practice had been affected by bushfire, to make new artwork about their experiences. 

In this ongoing body of work, Katherine explores themes of destruction, ephemerality and change, inside/outside, transparency and pattern, colonial overlay and land/nature and culture dichotomies.
