Nietzche said, “Great art is gratitude.” And Goethe said, “In art personality is everything.” As a fine art photographer with artistic roots in dramatic writing, Kat O’Neill works to balance gratitude and personality in all her pieces. Her portfolios, printed on metal, feature graffiti, abstract art and mixed media.
Kat’s work has been described as provocative, imaginative and unexpected. “I am always looking for a story. Whether it is a rock on the beach or graffiti on an abandoned wall. If I don’t find the story, I create one. A gallery director once told me that art should be neutral, with no agenda, just a nice pattern or some vibrant colors that don’t offer a point of view or require involvement beyond the surface. Months later that same director said she loved my work because not only did it make her think, but it took her somewhere.”
Kat has won many awards for her art including the Award of Excellence by Juror Karen Marks, Director of Manhattan’s Howard Greenberg Gallery, one of the world’s leading photography galleries. Her work has been shown at RJD Fine Arts Gallery, Jeanie Tengelson Gallery, Fotofoto Gallery, Guild Hall, Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum, The Marine Museum, Ashawagh Hall and East End Arts Gallery with private collections in NY, LA, Vegas, London and Paris. She is represented by The White Room Gallery in Bridgehampton. www.thewhiteroom.gallery
