Talk to most artists and you’ll find their careers have rarely been planned. It’s usually some chance encounter with a certain medium, a specific work of art or a unique teacher, that determines their artistic trajectory. For Kathy Puzey it was a notice for a woodcut workshop in Florence, Italy. A recent recipient of the Utah Arts & Museum’s Visual Art Fellowship Award, Puzey now teaches at Utah State University and in this video interview we watch as she works on campus in Logan, talks about her influences and working methods, and explains why she makes “suicide prints.”
Watch the video interview in the October 2012 edition of 15 Bytes.
The founder of Artists of Utah and editor of its online magazine, 15 Bytes, Shawn Rossiter has undergraduate degrees in English, French and Italian Literature and studied Comparative Literature in graduate school before pursuing a career in art.
