Kathryn Stamps grew up in New England. She studied art and art history in college and earned an MFA in painting from Hunter College in 2010. Stamps makes small paintings and sketches, finding repetitions and groupings of simple shapes in the landscape. She experiments with a colorful palette and varied painting techniques. Her many years as a landscape painter inform her current work, in which she has introduced themes of floating, dream-like spatial logic, geometric elements, and playful colors.
"This exhibit lends a unique and beautifully interpreted version of what we see daily but sometime fail to notice. Ms. Stamps' work is an absolute pleasure to have in our gallery." - County Executive Edward A. Diana
"Her 'Sea' series features 12 small format paintings and a handful of tiny sketches, all of which focus on the textures and forms that define New York Harbor."
