Kristen Crouch (b. 1991, Wilmington, NC) received her BFA in photography and a minor in sculpture from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2014. After graduation, she moved to Wilmington, NC and has worked a host of of day jobs while continuing her fine arts practice and establishing herself as a curator and community arts advocate. Crouch's work explores nostalgia, perceptions and experiences of death, and the human condition. With an interest in math and process-based media, she examines the complexities of human connection, interaction, and existence in the information age, with memory existing as mental, physical, and digital storage. In her most recent work, Crouch investigates personal relationships and experiences through a meticulous progression of layers informed by numerology, geographical location, and colors she makes using numbers.
