Engaging with alternative processes and digital photography, bookmaking, performance, and video art, Aunna Moriarty’s practice is informed by rituals and routines in everyday life, home, and inner realities in contrast to the external world. Playing with the impact of time, color, and scale, she explores the dichotomy of interior and exterior spaces to investigate the psyche and frequently performs in her own work.
Born and raised in Washington State, her practice is rooted in the Pacific Northwest, exhibiting in Seattle, Bellingham, and Portland. Moriarty often performs within coastal landscapes, embracing the magic of the forest and sea. Moriarty is a graduate of the BFA in Photography program at Seattle University and is currently an MFA in Photography candidate at the University of Colorado Boulder.
