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 solo exhibitions of her work at galleries and museums in New York, Texas, Georgia, Virginia, Florida and internationally. Her work has been exhibited widely in group shows across the US and Europe as well. 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 and Talley Dunn Gallery.
