From: Los Angeles, Calif.
Natasha Wheat has a Masters of Fine Arts in Sculpture from the California College of the Arts and Bachelors in Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Now a New Yorker, she is a very multi-faceted artist. Some of her exhibitions include shows at the Museum of Folk and Craft Art in San Francisco, the Kadist Art Foundation in the same city, Clarke Gallery in Berlin, and Chicago's Mess Hall. She had her first museum exhibition at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art in 2010 where she created a work that lasted seven days and involved audience involvement to understand how historic citrus gardens could be used to explore themes such as social status and agriculture.
Natasha Wheat's exhibition for RH Contemporary Art is called "Field Without Color." It is an almost Rothko-esque series that uses intense solid blocks of fabric and pigments. She explores the tension between industrial and organic through her choice of materials: carbon, bone char, graphite, and silk. This minimalist series invokes a meditative stillness in the viewers, which resonates through the atmosphere around the pieces.
