Nathan Abel is an artist currently living and working in Casper, Wyoming. Growing up in the rural agrarian midwest and the rocky mountains has instilled a deep interest in both the untouched and the manipulated landscapes that holds 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 ways to get away from the noise that constantly surrounds us in today’s fast paced media saturated world. He does this through the use of printmaking, drawing, book arts, and installation.
Nathan holds a Bachelors of Arts from the University of Wyoming where he studied printmaking and graphic design, a Masters of Fine Arts of Studio Art in Printmaking from the University of Arizona and a Masters 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. He is also co-founder of Lucky Day Press a letterpress and collaborative publishing printmaking studio in Casper, Wyoming.
