About the Artist

Natalie Baxter (b. 1985) received her BA in Fine Art from the University of the South in Sewanee, TN in 2007 and MFA from the University of Kentucky in 2012. Through video, photography and sculpture, her work deals with issues of home and place identity. Her most recent body of work, Warm Gun, applies sewing skills she learned from her Appalachian grandmother to create soft sculpture guns - traditional symbols of masculinity and Americana - that challenge gender norms, gun culture and violence. Baxter currently lives in Brooklyn, NY.
