Katy Diamond Hamer
 
Statement 
Trained as an artist with a BFA from FIT and an MA from New York University, I am the Founding Editor of the art and culture website Eyes-Towards-The-Dove. Focusing on art reviews, interviews and studio visits. A recent highlight includes an interview with esteemed curator and Dean of the Yale School of Art Robert Storr. The website has 30,000 monthly readers and is a favorite of New York Magazine critic Jerry Saltz. As a journalist I also contribute to several contemporary art magazines including Flash Art International, W Magazine, New York Magazine (Vulture), SLEEK Magazine and Frieze d/e. 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. I try to insert myself into the work and 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 practice and taste level, most specifically Arte Povera (Italy, 1962-1972).  
Katy Diamond Hamer is currently based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
