In her new invitational installation at the Bowery Gallery, Moira Bateman presents abstractions from microscopic study of lake bottom sediments, including diatoms in mixed media artworks created with natural waterway and sediment-stained silk from Minnesota’s bogs, rivers, wetlands and lakes.
Bateman is a contemporary visual artist living in Minneapolis. In this exhibition, she invokes a variety of methods to dye swaths of silk using the tannins and sediment found in natural waterways, allowing the stain to seep into the cloth over time. The pieces are further worked with other mixed media including hand stitching and beeswax to create abstract works of art.
Bateman completed a Master of Landscape Architecture degree at the University of Minnesota, with a dual concentration in Landscape Ecology and Studio Art.
The Bowery Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm. For more information, contact the gallery at 646-230-6655 or email@example.com.
