Mary Claire Becker uses printmaking, sculpture, and video animation to explore the fetishization of landscape as “other” in industrialized cultures, particularly in the United States. Her artworks rearrange and re-contextualize human-made depictions of Nature. She holds a BFA from UNC Asheville, an MA and MFA from the University of Iowa, and a Graduate Certificate of Book Arts from the UI Center for the Book. She has shown nationally at venues such as Tippetts and Eccles Gallery at Utah State University, the Stanley Museum of Art’s First Friday series in Iowa City, IA, the New York Center for Book Arts, Blue Spiral 1 in Asheville, NC, and Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, OH. She was the recipient of the Curator’s Choice Award in Mid America Print Council’s 2018 Juried Exhibition, and in 2019 she served as the Stephen L. Barstow Artist in Residence at Central Michigan University.
