Bio

Kara Braciale is an artist and educator based in northern Virginia.  Her work takes a variety of forms including paintings, digital works and textile objects alongside more conversational and social works such as the collaboratively run Proof Gallery, a project space in South Boston active from 2007-2018.  Visually, she conflates references to different spaces: interior, exterior, the floor, the wall, ornamental, utilitarian, domestic, institutional, virtual and historical. She takes patterns, ideas, decor, languages and systems and uses them as metonyms for the valences of authority surrounding the aesthetics of the spaces to which they refer.
