Nathan Abel is an artist currently living and working in Casper, Wyoming. Growing up in the rural agrarian midwest and the rocky mountains have instilled a deep interest in open spaces and the untouched and man-made landscapes that hold histories and memories. Nathan’s work draws upon these landscapes in his surveying of personal identity, relationships, and history. Through his work, he searches for quiet ways to slow the world down and cause reflection while exploring decaying memories and oral history through the use of Printmaking, Drawing, Artist Books, and Installation.
Nathan holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Wyoming where he studied printmaking and graphic design, a Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art in Printmaking from the University of Arizona, and a Master of Education from Montana State University. He enjoys teaching and its interaction with his studio practice. Nathan’s work has been included in regional, national, and international exhibitions.
