WEBSITE(S)| Natasha Bowdoin

Natasha Bowdoin’s work pushes the boundaries between drawing, painting, sculpture and installation. Known for her cut paper, collage-based work, and site-responsive installations, she investigates the potential intersections of the visual and the literary, channeling the experience of reading into the activity of drawing, while reimagining our relationship to the natural world.

Born and raised in West Kennebunk, ME, Bowdoin went on to receive her BA from Brandeis University in Classics and Studio Art and her MFA from Tyler School of Art.  She has been awarded numerous residencies including fellowships at the Core Program in Houston, TX; The Roswell AIR Program in New Mexico; and the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, NE. Bowdoin has presented her work in solo and group exhibitions at numerous galleries and museums nationally and throughout Europe.  She received a Joan Mitchell Foundation Fellowship Grant in 2007 and her work has been reviewed in publications including Artforum, BOMB, and Wallpaper* Magazine. Bowdoin is represented by Monya Rowe Gallery, New York, NY and Talley Dunn Gallery, Dallas, TX.
