Friday, March 3
7 – 9 pm
Natalie Westbrook collages the world around her into vibrant expressions of acrylic, colored pencil, and cut paper shapes.
Her inspiration stems directly from life observation, living in the wetlands of Connecticut and traveling across Hawaii. Abstract yet
of nature and the body, her paintings and paper works present a bold take on the interconnectedness within environment,
humanity, and the painting process.
Westbrook was born in Louisville, KY (1980), and currently lives in New Haven, CT where she teaches painting and drawing at Yale University.
She received her MFA in Painting and Printmaking from Yale University (2010) after receiving a BFA from The Cooper Union School of Art (2002)
and MA in Critical and Curatorial Studies from the University of Louisville (2004). She is co-founding editor of Lookie-Lookie, a quarterly art journal.
This will be Westbrook’s second solo show at Reynolds Gallery.
