Iconic Drawings from the Man Who
Defined a Movement
Intensely personal. Hauntingly beautiful. Dark and confrontational.
Aunia Kahn doesn’t pull her punches. Creating exquisitely rendered
self-portraits that look like movie stills, Kahn combines photography,
painting, collage, and digital magic to create arresting images which
depict hardship, triumph, and the power of the human spirit. PHD Gallery
will showcase more than a dozen of Aunia Kahn’s images.
Kahn, a Michigan native, is a self-taught figurative
artist who was raised in an explosive and unpredictable home environment
and sought refuge through creativity and the arts. Her work combines
many disciplines, including photography, painting and collage. She
designs, builds, and executes characters, non-existent places, dreams,
illusions, and fears into creation. Each work makes use of her own
likeness in movie-like stills, and explores varied taboo and often
controversial subjects; challenging viewers to reevaluate their preconceived
notions. Yet she connects with her audience through honest feeling
