Kitty Hubbard is an intermedia artist and Associate Professor of Art at the College at Brockport, State University of New York. She studied photography with Merry Moor Winnett at Guilford College in North Carolina and was the first woman to graduate with a Photography concentration in Art at the college. Hubbard completed her MFA at Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, New York.During her time in Rochester, her work has incorporated digital image making on traditional and non-traditional surfaces, small and large scale as well as sculptural and installation projects.
Hubbard presented work in a solo exhibition in Wroclaw, Poland in August 2012. This ongoing body of work "sites (un)seen, responds to specific sites in this medieval city through photography, books, and performative "actions". Richly informed by personal narratives related to the sites, and extensive research in archives, the work explores displacement, relocation, and memory.
Hubbard's work has been included numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout the United States, and in Germany. Her images have been included in three photography textbooks, "Photography" by Barbara London, 7th edition, "Photographic Possibilities" by Robert Hirsch, 2nd edition, and "Exploring Color Photography" by Robert Hirsch, 5th edition
My life as an artist began with a camera in my hand and learning to see the world in new ways. Photography has changed, and so has my work, but it is always informed by my photographic training. I using scanners as cameras, DSLRs, and Diana cameras - the methods of image acquisition are as important and arbitrary, as the subject matter I explore. Dying flowers, fallen leaves, maps found in archives or online, the ephemeral nature of the the photo-based document, is always at the center of my inquiry. I am interested in the intersections of the past and present, presence and absence, identity, space, in my home, in Wroclaw, significant or forgotten. My work is informed by movement – dislocation, relocation - physically, emotionally, and site-specific.
