Artist with epilepsy is making waves in the NYC art scene

Cathy Hozack is one of my favorite artists, and it just so happens that she also has epilepsy. Cathy is showing her work for a limited time in New York City at the Denise Bibro Fine Art Gallery.

Cathy has said, “I am an artist with too much electricity in my brain: I have epilepsy. In 2008, I had brain surgery to remove the focal point of my seizures. Since then, my memory has been more limited, and the way I mentally organize images has altered. And after all that, I still have seizures. With these changes, my paintings have become more than art to me. They are a unique record of my memory, experience, and the way I perceive the world. They are a search for harmony among chaotic and conflicting elements.”
