Crafty B*tch: Natalie Featherston

Contemporary realist painter Natalie Featherston brings a unique voice to the traditional trompe l’oeil style, in which artists create illusions of three-dimensional objects or perspectives with hyperrealist imagery. Featherston modernizes this centuries-old style with witty narratives and contemporary themes, tricking the viewer into seeing crumpled paper or layered objects instead of a flat painted surface. For her upcoming solo show at Meyer Gallery, Featherston presents a series of trompe l’oeil paintings that depict intricate collages, which the artist first creates in her studio with found objects. The resulting “still life” paintings deceive the viewer, who must observe the work closely to confirm its two-dimensionality. “Crafty B*tch: Trompe L’oeil Paintings of Natalie Featherston,” opens with an Artist Reception on Friday, September 13th from 5-7pm.
