About Katy Schimert
Katy Schimert is a New York-based who creates work in a wide range of media, including drawing, sculpture, and video that resemble dream-like, otherworldly, and cosmic landscapes. Interested in the interplay between the concrete and the conceptual, Schimert merges natural forms found in the landscape with elemental, abstract shapes that imbue her work with a mythic or archetypal resonance.
