Kathryn Dunlevie Artist Bio:
Kathryn Dunlevie is a photography-based mixed media artist whose work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and internationally. From an early age, she has been fascinated by states of consciousness in which the known world moves fluidly across space and time, conjuring versions of reality all the more compelling for being unexpected. Intrigued by these spatial and temporal inconsistencies, and by each individual’s particular and shifting sense of reality, Kathryn fragments, reassembles, and layers photographs to suggest the intrusion of alternate worlds. Her photographs of everyday images are transformed into compositions that hint at mysterious underlying structures and intangible extra dimensions. Born on the east coast, Kathryn lived in six different states by the time she was 12, and in Paraguay when she was 16. She has a B.A. in fine arts from Rice University, and studied art history and film at the University of Paris, painting at California College of the Arts, and photography in Madrid. She has received numerous awards and fellowships, including two Arts Council Silicon Valley Artist Laureate Fellowships in Photography, a Peninsula Artists Fund Grant Award, and two Palo Alto Art Center Radius Awards. Her work has been included in the US Art in Embassies Program and in Saatchi’s BEST OF 2014, and she has exhibited at Houston’s FotoFest since 2002. Kathryn’s work has earned critical acclaim in Spain’s La Fotografia Actual, Korea’s Photo+, England’s Saatchi Online Spotlight and Germany’s Profifoto, as well as in the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Camerawork: Journal of Photographic Arts, ArtLies, and Artweek. Cathy Kimball, Director of the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, writes of Kathryn’s work: 'Through brilliant compositional detail and manipulation, she creates disconcerting, surprising, inexplicable spaces and scenarios – swimming pools that have many points of entry, cloisters with multiple arched domes, streetscapes that elude mapmakers, and interior settings that are almost, but not quite right.'
