Kellye Eisworth is a Denver-based artist utilizing the photographic medium to explore themes of memory, pain, vulnerability, and the concepts of innate and constructed identity. Employing the conventions of traditional studio portraiture, her work focuses on the human body as a cultural and individual text to be read. Though often entering into a dialogue about larger social norms, much of her work is rooted in the autobiographical; whether through direct self- exploration or through empathetic encounters with others, her artistic practice allows her to interpret and understand her own personal history as well as the world around her.

Eisworth has exhibited her work across the country, including First Street Gallery in New York, NY; the MPLS Photo Center in Minneapolis, MN; and The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, CO. A Louisiana native, she received her BFA in photography from Louisiana State University in 2012 and recently graduated from a masters program in interdisciplinary media arts practice at the University of Colorado in 2016.
