Katy Martin

Visual Artist

KATY MARTIN is a visual artist whose work combines painting, photography and performance.  She also makes films and videos.

Katy’s art — paint on skin — is about the fluidity of borders, and skin itself as a porous boundary that continually shifts and changes.

Katy collaborates with three artists in Paris, and exchanges photos on a weekly basis with an artist in Berlin.

She also writes and does curatorial projects with media artists in Shanghai.

Katy's current preoccupation is verticality in Chinese painting — especially in relation to Taoist cosmologies —  and also the horizontal movement of western handwriting forms.
