Multi-media shown at Grey Forest

 

Natalie Tita Bowman of Grey Forest is a maker of multi-media sculpture and crafts.

She was born in Mexico and has been making “stuff” as she calls it, all her life.

After her kids grew up and left, she went to college at the University of Texas at San Antonio where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture.

She’s tried her hand at many kinds of art.

Bowman’s made five book covers for books of poems published by the University of Arkansas.

She’s made medical cabinets with old bottles and recreated their labels as a piece of art to hang on a wall. She’s worked on a crystal chamber that once was used to amputate legs.

Her art even gets as big as a room. She’ll decorate a room and that room becomes a stage of art. “So it’s a work of art that people can go into,” Bowman said. She once filled a room with white. So it represented a hospital room complete with gladioli on the bed.

She has a apron that’s made with several kinds of vintage fabrics.

She’ll cut and paste her photo and drawings. She likes real life work in her art – no photoshopping.

Bowman also likes to restore collectable lamps.

Sometimes what’s she working with, like a fabric, doesn’t look old enough, so she’ll bury it outside for awhile.
