Park Place Window Project
Starting September 6
The Shirley Fiterman Art Center presents a special project in its gallery window facing onto Park Place featuring a site-specific work by Natalie Moore, entitled Highways and Byways. Moore’s current body of work is created with woven stainless steel wire. Moore methodically builds wire grids, line by line, embracing both the process of repetition and the inherent flaws embedded in her process. Moore then paints her works, transforming the cold, hardness of the steel to create objects that evoke both the natural and the man-made, resembling topographies ravaged by wind, rain, and time, or a CAD wire-frame diagram gone awry.
Natalie Moore is an artist working in Brooklyn, NY whose primary practice is sculpture and installation. Her work is often described at an intersection between drawing and sculpture.
