LA GRANDE, Ore. – Visiting artist Nika Blasser will give a free, public lecture on her work at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 26 in Huber Auditorium in Badgley Hall at EOU.
Blasser, who recently moved to Pendleton, is an accomplished artist who has studied and exhibited her work in both the United States and Canada. She works in a wide range of media including video, installation, drawing, painting, printmaking and photography.
Her practice explores the intersections between highly manipulated forms and organic genesis, often mixing synthetic and natural materials. She is particularly interested in ephemeral processes that slip between pure and adulterated states of nature in order to highlight the fragility of our environment.
“We look forward to having Nika on campus to share her art and conduct studio visits with our art majors,” said Susan Murrell, associate professor of art at EOU. “It’s exciting to have an artist with such experimental and expansive work move to the area. Come see images of her work, learn about her creative process and welcome her to Eastern!”
Blasser holds a Master of Fine Arts in Intermedia and Drawing from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, AB, Canada.
