Katherine Gulla uses art, design and industrial techniques to explore our experience of nature and light in the city. Her work ranges from photography, sculpture, and installation to painting and mixed media. Born in Berkeley, California, she grew up in New York City, and lives and works in Boston, Massachusetts. After studying painting, her early work evolved into video art and then documentary television. As a freelance writer/producer of video and new media, she worked with many different technologies and industries. This experience helps her find new forms of presentation to realize her ideas.
Since transitioning back to fine arts, Gulla’s work has been shown widely throughout New England and New York. Opening in the spring of 2020, Katherine Gulla: Passage at Danforth Art Museum features work exploring states of change in four different mediums. In 2018, the deCordova Corporate Program commissioned Forest for a site-specific installation in Cambridge, MA and Catamount Arts Gallery in Vermont included Falling 10 in Arts Connect. In 2017, 555 Gallery in Boston and Quogue Gallery in the Hamptons, NY featured The Path paintings. Forest and Shadow photo sculptures were on view at Sohn Fine Art Gallery in Lenox, MA. Previous exhibitions at Danforth Art Museum in Massachusetts included a solo show and the Annual with 2nd Prize in 2016, and Honorable Mention in 2011 and 2014. Gallery Kayafas in Boston featured Gulla’s photo sculptures and paintings in one-person and two-person shows in 2008 and 2006. Her works are in private and corporate collections.
