KARALEE KUCHAR

As a dancer Karalee Kuchar grew up using movement as an entry point into the depths of her own creative mind. Her visual work is a fusion of figure and landscape. She believes it is through movement that we can discover the source of our opposition and ultimately free ourselves of it. Moving through nature with her camera as witness, Karalee creates images that explore the struggle we experience in liminal spaces. By exploring earthly and spiritual connections through interaction, she seeks to discover the union of these relationships in order to unveil their elemental sources and to seek change.

Karalee received her formal training from the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, receiving an MFA in 2017 and a BFA in 2010. She currently lives and works in Seattle, WA.

Karalee’s work was recently on view in Korea for Artfairs Seoul, and in new York CIty at the soho photo gallery for the National Alternative Processes Competition. she currently has a solo show in Portland, Oregon titled 31 Days in the basement of time. Karalee was recently selected as one of twenty photographers to be included in a limited edition portfolio titled DE|MARCATION: A Survey of Contemporary Photography in Utah.
