Nika Blasser is an interdisciplinary artist who works in a wide range of media including video, installation, drawing, painting, and photography. Nika’s 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. She recently participated in artist residencies at Tækker AIR Aarhus in Denmark, and at Caldera in Sisters Oregon. Nika completed her master of fine arts in drawing and intermedia at the University of Alberta in 2013. She holds a bachelor’s degree in painting, drawing, and printmaking (2004) from Portland State University.
