ARTIST STATEMENT: Kia Dyson is an artist who's mediums consist of photography, collage art and digital design. Currently residing in Brooklyn, New York — this Baltimore native finds solace in creating. She appreciates and frames life as it is in all of its complexities, and uses the camera and computer to bring the oftentimes-nuanced beauty of it all — and of everyone — to the forefront. Her photography work has been on display at The Reginald Lewis Museum, The Aljira Center of Contemporary Art, and The Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago. She ended 2014 with collage work on view at Scope Miami.
