DESCRIPTION

In the featured exhibition, Cover Versions, Kathryn Dunlevie collages everyday, familiar images and transforms them into compositions that hint at invisible, underlying structures. In 2010, she was invited by Goodwill Industries to create a work of art for their "Green"-themed fundraiser. Dunlevie found herself drawn to old record albums and chose some to use as not-so-blank canvases. In these works, as well as the ones featured in the current exhibition, she combines her photographs with vintage album covers to add diverse textures and elements from popular culture. Perhaps more important, using album covers has provided Dunlevie "with a wide range of bizarre inspirational springboards."
