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 also writes and does curatorial projects in collaboration with artists in Shanghai.  In addition, she is working on a photo project with an artist in Berlin.

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