Moira Bateman has developed a reputation as an innovative and accomplished textile/fiber artist. Based in Minneapolis, Bateman centers her conversations with ideas of place to explore concepts of wilderness and waterways - as well as ideas of human impact inflected on the earth, mothering and nurturing, as well as growth and care-taking more broadly.
Bateman is especially interested in in time, water, birth, history, dirt, and life-cycles, the markings, colors, textures, and deteriorations made by water on the cloth that she soaks in Minnesota watersheds not only intend to make visible the wonder of life hidden within water, but also seek to render visible ways in which our earth has and continues to be damaged by destructive human actions.
Bateman's studio is located in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District in the Northrup King Building. Studio visits are by appointment.
