SYNCOPATED SPACES by Geri Hooks, President, Hooks-Epstein Galleries Syncopated Spaces finds Kathryn Dunlevie following her on-going journeys through fractured landscapes and urban scenes. Dunlevie has long investigated the unseen seen which only art, particularly photography, allows us to see. It is molded on the ideal of the instant – capturing a furtive moment for posterity’s sake; a displacement, an abbreviated moment of life’s regular rhythm forever paused. That final image, at most, only allows one to “see” what was captured in front of the lens at one precise moment when, in reality, we know much more was occurring outside the immediate photographic frame that affected it. In the end, photographs only depict a morsel of their intended “truth.” Dunlevie, however, subverts photography’s original burden: that what you see is all you get; that there is only a single possible vantage point. She breaks this down by photographing scenes from as many viewpoints as possible, then, literally, destroys the image prior to restoring it to often include disparate parts to form a coherent whole – that which photography can never show us even though we know it is there. In music, syncopation implies a compression of a musical space or moment. Dunlevie, then, is performing her own syncopated composition by allowing us to have a complete experience in one brief, shining moment. Photo-collage on panel

Kathryn Dunlevie is a photography-based mixed media artist whose work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and internationally. Cathy Kimball, Executive 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. Kathryn has always been intrigued by spatial and temporal inconsistencies, and by each individual’s particular and shifting sense of reality. She 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 lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Kathryn has received numerous awards and fellowships, including two Arts Council Silicon Valley Artist Laureate Fellowships in Photography. Her work has been included in Houston’s FotoFest since 2002, in Saatchi Art's BEST OF 2014 and in the US Art in Embassies Program. Her work has been reviewed in Spain’s La Fotografia Actual magazine, Korea’s Photo+ magazine, England’s Saatchi Online Spotlight and Germany’s Profifoto magazine, as well as in The New York Times, Artweek, Camerawork: A Journal of Photographic Arts, Photo Metro and Artlies.
