Kat was chosen for Top Artists of 2019 by the internationally acclaimed art magazine, Destig, and her work has been exhibited by galleries, museums and private collectors as well as featured in a myriad of publications and sites including The New York Times and Fine Arts Magazines.

An award-winning photographer and mixed media artist whose work has been described as provocative, imaginative, unique, bold, crisp and unexpected, Kat is also co-owner/co-director of The White Room Gallery in Bridgehampton, NY, which has been voted the Best Gallery in the Hamptons since opening in 2015.

“O’Neill’s works are a colorful coupling of near abstraction with realism along with a strong dose of implied narration. In her new work, Set In Stone, collaged elements of photographed color, text and extracted imagery combine to nearly cloak the underlying photograph of a tombstone, hand-selected for the spark that ignited imaginative wonderings of life, death and the things that happen along the way. The series reflects the labor-intensiveness of Kat O’Neill’s process. She is continually on the visual hunt and makes photographs for both active series and to capture images for later use as collaged elements in her layered, and sometimes mixed media works.” Hamptons Art Hub

Kat has won many awards for her art including Gold for Best of the Best East End Artist for the past four years and The Award of Excellence by esteemed jurors Karen Marks, Director of Manhattan’s Howard Greenberg Gallery, one of the world’s leading photography galleries, Dr. Naomi Rosenblum, eminent photographic historian and Jennifer McGregor, Director of Arts and Senior Curator at Wave Hill Cultural Center.

"As an artist with artistic roots in dramatic writing, Kat works to balance impact and personality in all her pieces, often incorporating words and humor. Street art is mixed with city images, rocks turn into characters, industrial pieces take on their own beauty in abstract reflections or evocative still life’s, vintage album covers create montages, words convey a story and, often, paint and layers add dimension as her pieces are born. Of course also capturing the beauty of the east end is a never-ending challenge. Kat is intrigued by a variety of catalysts, both masculine and feminine. Her images are produced on canvas and metal. Those produced through dye-sublimation on aluminum can hang outside as well as inside, currently gracing a few yachts, pools, barns, lounges and fire pits.” All works are limited editions.
