Katherine Dean is a Memphis based visual artist. Her work exist at the merger of traditional and contemporary photography. By exploring modern ideas and imagery with historic and/or manipulated traditional processes, Dean addresses the ideas of time, memory, and space.
Dean earned a MFA (2017) in photography from Memphis College of Art and also holds a BFA (2014) in photography from the University of North Florida. An abrupt transition from one landscape to the other has greatly influenced the manner in which Dean approaches the creative process. Dean recently spent two years working with a small group of artists in Memphis creating large scale public sculptures. Her work has been exhibited nationally in a number of juried shows.
Currently Dean lives in Memphis, TN, where she is working on a new body of work exploring the dissolution of memory and time.
