Katy Itter is an interdisciplinary artist, born and raised in West Seattle, and currently based in New York. In addition to her studio practice, she has worked as a costume and display artist for such companies as Disney and Anthropologie, as well as various television, film and theatrical productions. Her work explores the art of repetition, obsession and the pursuit of perfection. Images of femininity, celebrities, body positivity as well as cultural phenomena are frequently glitched before translating into fiber art in order to question the reality the images live in and the social constructs they dictate.
Her work has been exhibited at La Luz de Jesus, Los Angeles; Untitled Space, New York City; Williamsburg Art & Historical Society, Brooklyn, NY; Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, New Paltz, NY; Catalyst Gallery, Beacon, NY; Espacio Gallery, London, England; Queens Museum, Queens, NY; Sandpoint Gallery, Seattle, WA; and Palazzo Pio, Rome, Italy.
She received her MFA in sculpture from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 2015.
