Self Portrait (c)KdM

Katrina del Mar is a New York-based art and commercial photographer, as well as an award winning film director. Her work has been described as "beautiful" exuding an "intimate chemistry" and also as "filth of the highest quality." Katrina herself has been described as a "major league cutie," "a wild woman," "the Lesbian Russ Meyer," and "apparently, the lesbian stepchild of Kenneth Anger."

Katrina has started production for a new webseries, delMARVELOUS: A Day in the Life, Katrina del Mar.
Filming for Season One is already well under way, editing has begun and there is a kickstarter campaign to raise the money to produce the full thirty episodes of this artist's "artless, non-narrative, non-linear, semi-surreal, experimental, documentary-style series."
delMARVELOUS focuses del Mar's sharp eye on everything from art and artists talking about their process and ideas, sexy women, surfing, stupid dance moves, insane ideas, rants, and occasionally, in the tradition of Martin Scorsese, del Mar's grandmother makes an appearance.
While she refers to herself as a lesbian gigolo - something we hope will to get a glimpse as delMARVELOUS progresses, we will have to watch and see - the press has referred to her as a "wild woman" and the "lesbian Russ Meyer." The Huffington Post describes her as talented and "intimidatingly badass."

Katrina has been a photographer for over 20 years. As a freelance photographer, her client list includes Sony Music, Island Records, Polygram, V2 Records, London Records, Time Out New York, People Magazine, Alternative Press, Mademoiselle, and the NYPost. Katrina directs and produces independent films and music videos, commercials, short documentaries, reality television segments, and TV for the internet. Her work has been exhibited in group and solo gallery shows, museums, and club installations. She is a proficient in multimedia design, production and publishing.

Katrina writes, directs and produces award winning independent films. Her first film, Gang Girls 2000, shot entirely on super 8mm film, received a 4 & a half star review in Film Threat Magazine, and received glowing reviews from the press, inviting comparisons to the legendary Kenneth Anger. The follow up, Surf Gang, about a gang of women surfers from Rockaway Beach in New York City, landed Katrina a prestigious Fellowship in Video from the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and Best Experimental Film Award from the Planet Out Short Movie Awards announced at the Sundance Film Festival in 2006, and was screened at the Museum for Contemporary Art (CAPC) in Bordeaux, France. Her latest film project, Hell on Wheels Gang Girls Forever , completes the Girl Gang Trilogy & was the recipient of the Accolade Award of Merit and has screened to sold out shows in NYC, London, Berlin, Indianapolis, Sydney, Auckland, Atlanta, Boston and San Francisco.

A solo gallery show, GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS opens January 13 and runs through February 17, 2013 at Participant in New York City. The work is comprised of photographs, video and handmade books.

A solo gallery show called Gangs of New York was presented in June 2010, at Wrong Weather Gallery in Porto Portugal.

Katrina, invited to teach at the University of the Arts in Bremen, Germany, conducted the first ever Queer Trash Feminist Film Workshop with Katrina del Mar in October, 2010. Participants in the workshop wrote, shot, edited and publicly screened a short film in two days.

Katrina continues to photograph, to write and to produce, to direct and edit films and commercials, and to curate film programs.

As a freelance producer & editor, her client list includes Washington Square Films, Footlocker, Conde Nast (Sapient Nitro) and Project Runway/Magical Elves (Stella Zotis). As a freelance photographer, her client list includes Sony Music, Island /Def Jam, Polygram, V2 Records, Time Out New York, People Magazine, Alternative Press, Mademoiselle, and the NYPost.

As an artist, Katrina has shown her work at Participant Inc., Deitch Projects, ArtNow NY (Joseph Gross Gallery), The Museum for Contemporary Art (CAPC) in Bordeaux, France, Wrong Weather Gallery in Porto Portugal, American Fine Arts Company, Binz 39 in Switzerland, the Bass Museum of Art in Miami, the Miami Light Project, P.S. 122 in New York City, FabLab in Berlin, and the University of Cardiff in Wales.

Nov 2014 delMarvelous Webseries in production. Kickstarter campaign goes live.

March 2014 Summer Sang in Me solo exhibition at the Strange Loop Gallery, NYC 27 Orchard Street NYC. Summer Sang In Me is a compilation of Katrina del Mar's intimate photographic and video portraits of lovers, ex lovers, close friends and beautiful strangers. Entwined with self-portraits and elemental landscapes, these images map out the semi-fictional road trip of her life. In no particular order Del Mar is an artist, photographer, human being, lover. Her style is realistic /romantic; messy at times, tactile, beautiful, and gritty. Her pictures are foremost captured with a taste and passion for life in general, and for women in all their individuality of beauty and power in particular.
Reading like an unbound, semi-fictive yet very personal journal, the images, video clips and zines make up a story of restlessness, a study in fascination verging on obsession. The insistent drive to hold onto remnants of people so as not to lose their memory results in a type of souvenir collecting of a most personal nature, and a longer temporal narrative emerges which sees participants striding in and out of the story sometimes once, sometimes many times. This exhibition serves up a softer, more romantic side of del Mar's work, although the tough girl aesthetic clearly shines on in a series of images of planned bruises and fight-club aftermath, where tough girls proudly display evidence of their damage alongside evidence of unbridled lust.

May - Sep 2014 Katrina del Mar Landscapes in Group Exhibition at Empire State College
"These elemental landscapes hint at the re-creation of myths, a push to the edge and past it; I dive into the ocean's cool relief from hard pavement. Here I find surfer selkies, chased by lightning, dwarfed by nature, engulfed by nature, and also an expression of nature. The earth heaves and breathes, messy, messianic, message sent. We are determined to receive its force."

January 13-Feb 17 GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS solo exhibition of photographs, video and handmade books at Participant Inc. 253 East Houston Street New York City
Katrina del Mar is perhaps best known for her decades-long work in video and photography, chronicling the reality and illusion of her Lower East Side friends and lovers as punk heroines; or within her girl gang movie world of strictly female population. Creating a family tree indebted equally to B-movies and diaristic photography, del Mar's defiantly queer photographs and videos are iconic alternatives to the cultural status quo, offering an exuberant, hyper-stylized sexuality, an unapologetic feminist voice, and often guerilla-style production tactics. Particularly informed by the Greek word ekphrasis, a rhetorical device in which a description of a work becomes the work in and of itself, del Mar has described her practice as operating in a similar exchange: book covers and movie posters come before the books and movies and, in some instances, stand alone. She has noted, "Long after my films are finished, I am writing the novels they should have been based on. I write modern myths set in urban environments." More in the Press Release

MAY 2010: AFTER A LONG LONG TIME
Hell On Wheels Gang Girls Forever is finally finished!!

Hell On Wheels Gang Girls Forever (2010 HDV/Super 8mm film 36 minutes) is the culminating film in a trilogy of gang girl movies started ten years ago, with Gang Girls 2000 (2000 Super 8mm 27 minutes) and SURF GANG (2005 DV/Super 8mm 24 minutes).
The girl gang movie that winds up the cult classic gang trilogy! Burning up the dirty streets and blazing down the pavement, everything is all wheels all the time. Dyslexic Bikers, Homeless Queer Skateboarders, Violent Rollerskaters, Scooter riders with Gambling Parlors and HotRods for the Differently Abled! A Superlong Roster of Sizzling Superstars and a soundtrack of pure poprock bliss. Plot Summary / Synopsis: Brooklyn girl gang member Krank, after being shot in a mysterious guinea pig lab rescue incident, comes home from the hospital in a wheelchair to find her cats are gone, her mother is still insane and her gang is kicking her out. She turns to her best friend, the Mechanic, who gives her a pep talk and offers to turn her heap of crap wheelchair into a hot rod. Krank then joins the Outcasts, NYC girl gang wheel riders with a twist. The Outcasts are lead by Krash, a dyslexic cyclist who can only cycle backwards. The other girls in the gang have strange maladies such as Height Dysphoria and French Monotonism. Sparks fly between Krank and the upside-down skateboarder, Flip and clearly, Krank is ready to ride again. Meanwhile, the E. V. Ills, a violent roller derby gang led by C-Roll, tear up the track and dance the night away; the Slayers, homeless queer girl skateboarders panhandle and fish for crabs in New York City's East River; and the Full Tilts ride scooters and run numbers in the city's only Roller Disco Betting Parlor.
