Wendy Bowman (b. 1987) is an American artist who lives and works in New York City. Bowman was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas and attended Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas from 2006 - 2010. Since then she has been living and working between Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens as a photographer and painting assistant to an internationally acclaimed artist. Bowman’s photographs serve as an index of images that refer to a specific idea of her hometown. The subjects in her photos often seem isolated—their essences both undercut and accented by their context. She uses hard light and bright color to frame her subjects with the edges of urban landscapes in order to create intrigue with everyday artifacts and scenarios, which would usually be overlooked as ordinary.
Bowman states, “There is no linear,cohesive plot, but rather a layered reality in which we solely exist through perception—where all subjectivity is lost, and everything is glass."
