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 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 have contributed to several contemporary art magazines including Cultured Magazine, Galerie Magazine, Flash Art International, W Magazine, New York Magazine (Vulture), SLEEK Magazine. My approach to art writing is quite organic. I have spent many years 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 what if anything it says in the breadth of art history. 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.
