About the Artist

4db78db9 c561 49b1 b8b9 37dad1ec4ed5

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, place, and identity. Her recent bodies of work, Warm Guns 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.
