Spreading across the wall, spilling onto the floor, or cascading from architectural supports, Katy Stone’s artworks are both Rorschach tests of natural phenomena and rich harvests of line, shape, and color. She paints on a variety of materials and layers the elements into sculptural assemblages and installations that blur the boundaries between drawing, painting, and sculpture, engaging viewers with their complex fluidity. Stone has exhibited at nationally and internationally at galleries in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Vienna, and at museums including The McNay, and the Boise Art Museum and alternative spaces including Suyama Space in Seattle.   Her work has been featured in group exhibitions across the US including “Art+Space” at Project4 in Washington, DC, “Other Worlds,” at the Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville, Florida; “Earthly Delights,” at Mass Art in Boston; and internationally at The Chengdou International Biennale in Chengdou, South Korea.  She has been reviewed in many publications including Artweek, New Art Examiner, Sculpture Magazine and Art in America. Her commissioned public artworks include projects at Conoco Phillips in Houston, King County Correctional Facility in Seattle, Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, The Ascent in Cincinnati, designed by Daniel Libeskind, and at Twin Parks, in Taichung, Taiwan, among others.  In 2011, she will complete her first commission for the GSA’s Art in Architecture Program, at a Federal Courthouse in Jackson, MS, designed by H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture.  Originally from Iowa, Stone received her MFA in Painting from the University of Washington in 1994 and is based in Seattle.
