Biography

Photographer and installation artist Dorothy O’Connor graduated from Georgia State University with a degree in Literature and a minor in Studio Arts. She continued her education at The Creative Circus, a commercial art school in Atlanta. Her photographs and installations feature thoughtfully composed, hand-crafted scenes which combine elements of still-life, portraiture, landscape, and performance to produce unique and evocative works of art. She has received grants from Possible Futures, FLUX, the Forward Arts Foundation and Art on the Beltline to present her installations as public art. The lasting element of her installations, her photographs, have been exhibited in galleries throughout the U.S. In 2013, she was artist in residence at Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art in Nashville where she built and presented her installation, “Shelter.” Her most recent projects were interactive sculptural pieces for Art on the Beltline 2014, 2015 & 2016 and a commissioned piece, “The Flood,” for Crusade for Art’s CSA program. Ms. O’Connor’s work is part of the permanent collections at MOCA GA, Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art, the Center for Fine Art Photography and is included in many private collections.
