Karla Tucker, a graduating senior from Austin Peay State University’s Department of Art, will be exhibiting “Thin Skin,” a series of wax encased photographs. The exhibition will run March 16-19, 2015 in the APSU’s Trahern Gallery 108. There will be a closing reception, free to the public on Thursday, March 19th from 5 to 8 p.m.
“A photograph is a two-dimensional image of the three-dimensional world. It’s framed from inside the camera, leaving the viewers to only see what the artist intended for them to see. As human beings, we frame ourselves and our lives in a similar way,” Tucker said. Between her layers of encaustic wax and photography, Tucker allows the viewers to see into private moments and thoughts on the everyday struggle of being satisfied with who you really are.
Tucker is a local artist, living and working in Clarksville. Her photographs have won local awards, grants, and scholarships. After graduating she has plans to move in order to continue her studies in art and pursue a Master of Fine Arts.
