Statement/Manifesto

Trained as an artist, I am currently participating in the art world via the pen, or rather keyboard as an art writer. Commencing with the website eyes-towards-the-dove.com, I now contribute to several contemporary art magazines including Flash Art International, Whitehot Magazine, Artvoices Magazine, and others. My approach to art writing is quite organic. I have spent many years of my life looking at art, investigating technique, approach, and the psychology behind the subjective content. As a writer, I try to insert myself into the work. I imagine what the artist might have been thinking when making the piece and if he/she felt that the resulting work is satisfactory to the goal they had when setting out. Certain movements have been very relevant to my writing and taste level, most specifically Arte Povera (Italy, 1962-1972).  

Katy Hamer is currently based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
