Khara

Khara Oxier (b. 1979) is an Idaho based self-taught artist concentrating on the human body. The depictions of the human body in her work correlate with her background in anthropological studies. Her work confronts evolutionary components that explore biological and philosophical response to both physical and psychological environments. After receiving an honorable discharge in the United States Marine Corps, she attended Boise State University. Oxier earned a degree in Anthropology in 2016 with focus in genetics, evolutionary medicine, and osteology.
