Natasha Bowdoin (b. 1981, West Kennebunk, ME) lives and works in Houston. A graduate of the Tyler School of Art (MFA in painting, 2007) and Brandeis University (BA in classics and studio art, 2003), Bowdoin has been awarded numerous artist residencies, including the Core Program, Museum of Fine Arts Houston (2008-2010). Bowdoin has exhibited widely with many gallery and museum exhibitions over the past decade, including recent solo exhibitions: Maneater at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams, MA (2018-2019), and Lunar Spring at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond, VA (2017). Known for her cut paper, collage-based work, Bowdoin 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. Before art school Bowdoin worked as a lobsterwoman for her family in Maine.
