About the artist, Katy DeMent: I create handmade paper as a means to an end. Paper art works take the form of: art lighting, shadow box, stationary, books and sculptures all crafted from sustainably collected plants, recycled and invasive fibers and rust belt relics. No material is arbitrary; I am influenced by overlooked materials found in my community, my own back yard. Often my works invite the viewer to playfully interact with the art work through light and kinetic elements that bring the imagery to life. I currently hold a studio space in a former dance studio in Swissvale, Pa. Here I make paper out of invasive species and pull prints on a 100 year old press.
