Statement

Katie Hovencamp is an artist who fractures cultural constructs such as gender, beauty, and the body politic to expose, examine, and critique their social and historical assumptions. For some time fairy tales and fantasy have inspired her imagination and curiosity about their effects on women’s roles and the construction of their identities.
Hovencamp began her professional studies at the Baum School of Art in Allentown, PA and received her BFA from Arizona State University in 2009 and her MFA from the Pennsylvania State University in 2014. Hovencamp has exhibited her work in numerous exhibitions nationally and internationally. She was the recipient of Outstanding Student Achievement Award for Contemporary Sculpture for the International Sculpture Center in 2014 and the University Graduate Fellowship at the Pennsylvania State University in 2012. She has taught at various institutions such as the Edna Vihel Center for the Arts, Totts Gap Art Institute, Pennsylvania State University, and Harrisburg Area Community College.
