About the artist:
Kristin Karch is an Athens-based artist and recent graduate of UGA’s Lamar Dodd School of Art with a BFA in Photography and a minor in art history. The photographic series on view in the brewery “We All Return To Our Homes” was inspired by a trunkful of photos given to Kristin by her grandmother. Kristin was moved by the fact that she would never know most of the people in the photos, yet she felt a strong sense of curiosity about them and their stories. In response, she created new layers of meaning by painting over parts of the photos and permanently altering the way the picture can be read. This process of artistic revision gives new color to the voices of the past and creates stories-within-stories from Kristin’s contemporary re-interpretation of her family photos.
