About

Martin Katzoff is a multidisciplinary artist from Providence, Rhode Island living and working as an uninvited guest on the unceded and ancestral lands of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.

As a Jewish artist interested in Kabbalist perspectives, his etchings employ syncretism as a way to study Mythology across ancient and modern cultural and religious contexts.  Through the fabrication of sculptural objects, these recorded experiences stimulate modes of visual perception concerning symbols that reflect energetic unity, dancing with the possibility that artworks can function as instruments of magic. Currently, his sculptural work addresses the shared history of Semitic peoples and hopes to provide a contemplative space while working towards peace processes.

Martin’s lyrical and immersive large-scale murals have been featured at the Freehand Hotel and Broken Shaker (New York, NY) and Stair Galleries (Hudson, NY). He is a graduate of Bard College and holds an MFA from the University of British Columbia
