Artist: Humanity and Wild Nature

Moira Bateman, a contemporary visual artist living in Minneapolis explores humanity and wild nature mostly through large scale sculptures including mixed media and fiber, often working on-site with specific landscapes. Her most recent work was inspired by ten landscapes. She visited a cross section of Minnesota’s wild to allow the natural waterways to mark long silk sheaths. The raw silk was left submerged in bogs, rivers, lakes, a fen and a vernal pool over the summer of 2014, and then stitched, felted and printed with ink and water.
