Katy Martin

Born in: 1953

United States

Painter, printmaker, photographer, and filmmaker, Katy Martin’s work moves between mediums with a grace and ease that few artists are able to command. Her work has long centered on the body and choreography, a fascination that one can trace back to her earliest Super 8 movies. Almost all of her films and videos are rooted in tracing an action, whether it be artisans pulling the prints for an edition by Jasper Johns, the movement of a dancer, or the painted skin of the artist herself. Subtle yet distinctive, her films have an elegance and intuitive internal rhythm that will stick with you long after the screening has ended.

Katy Marin’s art has been exhibited in the US, Europe and Asia, including at MoMA, PPOW Gallery, Drawer 158, The Film-Makers Cooperative, Saint Peter’s Church and the Tribeca Film Festival (New York), the Sackler/Harvard Art Museums (Boston), Alexander/Heath Gallery (Virginia), GalerieForum Am Meer (Berlin), and the Shanghai Duolun Museum and the PIP/Pingyao International Photography Festival (China). She also did a project with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York that was inspired by the Chinese painter, Bada Shanren.

Katy Marin received awards including a film preservation grant through Anthology Film Archives and a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.
