Ashley Kobbe, originally from Camden, South Carolina, will graduate with honors and receive her BA in Fine Art Studio from Georgia College & State University in May 2020. Her research is focused on the alternative photographic process cyanotype because of its ability to convey a sense of calm and peacefulness. As an artist, she has been active in the community and participated in Empty Bowls for Middle Georgia Food Bank, collaborated with the Cherokee Brick Company for large sculptural projects, and exhibited her cyanotypes at Allied Arts.
My art installation is a reflection of my childhood days in where building forts provided me security, comfort and joy. I created this intimate space by combining cyanotype, fabric, gold leaf, and other materials that, when used together with natural light, radiate tranquility. My chosen images are of willow leaves, wine glasses, and my daughter, all of which bring me happiness and peace.
