Kathleen Dobrowsky
Brooklyn, NY
Website: http://
Neighborhood: Dyker Heights

Genre:Conceptual;


ARTIST STATEMENT: My name is Kathleen Dobrowsky, however, I draw/paint under the name of Kate Snap. I work in a digital drawing medium. I use this medium because it is very free flowing and allows me to create drawings in the moment. My art is conceptual. I have a stream of consciousness approach to my work starting with a concept which then emerges in a drawing. The digital medium is fairly new and didn’t exist when I was studying art. I like that it can be used to mimic the style of other mediums like watercolor or acrylic painting. It is also easy to incorporate other mediums such as photography into the drawings to enhance the experience. For me the concept or the idea should be the main focus, with the execution or style of the drawing serving to illustrate the concept. I chose the digital medium because it allows me to offer my work to all. I don’t believe that art should belong to the few, but to all. I can make many copies of each drawing without any degradation in the quality of the work in the printing process; each print has the quality of an original.
