“A former professor of photography at the University of Texas at Austin, native Australian Kate Breakey now lives and works in Tucson, Arizona. She first received international recognition for her large-scale, hand-colored photographs then adds layers of transparent oil paint and pencil.

Small Deaths, on view at the Michener Art Museum from March 14 – July 12, 2015 in the Fred Beans Gallery, features thirty extraordinary, hand-colored, oversized images of the birds, flowers, and insects that photographer Kate Breakey has memorialized through her work. The brilliance of her palette draws viewers to a close-up and unexpected confrontation with mortality. The images are life-size silver gelatin contact prints toned by hand with a golden wash. Breakey’s work has appeared in over 30 one-woman exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad. She received the Photographer of the Year Award in 2004 from the Houston Center for Photography.
