Kathryn Dunlevie has always been intrigued by spatial and temporal inconsistencies, and by every individual’s particular and shifting sense of what is real. Fragmenting, reassembling and layering images, she suggests the fluidity of space and time and the complex psychologies of the entities she portrays.
Born in Atlanta, Dunlevie 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. Her work has been exhibited in China twice at the Pingyao International Photography Festival, in Moscow with the US Art in Embassies Program, at Toronto’s Gallery TPW, and in the United States at FotoFest International, San Francisco Camerawork, PhotoAlliance, the Southeast Museum of Photography, Washington DC’s Art Museum of the Americas, and the Institute of Contemporary Art San Jose.
Her work has been reviewed in Spain’s La Fotografia Actual, Korea’s photo +, and in Germany’s Profifoto, as well as in Camerawork: A Journal of Photographic Arts, Visual Art Source, and AestheticsToday.blogs.
