Sorokin Gallery Presents Margeaux Walter’s Solo Exhibition, “All Natural”

Margeaux Walter October 6 – November 4, 2022: All Natural Artist Receptions are scheduled for Thursday October 6th, 6-9:00pm an Saturday October 8, 1:00-4:00pm.

Sorokin Gallery is pleased to present the critically acclaimed, Brooklyn-based artist, Margeaux Walter with her solo exhibition “All Natural.”

While Walters exhibits widely in the U.S. and abroad, Sorokin Gallery is the first gallery to be exhibiting this series of work.

The gallery is also very excited that Walters will be staging, for this show only, a site-specific installation in the gallery.

“All Natural” is a collection of high resolution, medium to large scale, C-print photographs that conflate a collective longing for the environment with the instinct to consume. Through ironically humorous staged vignettes, Walters creates simulated natural environments that she places herself into. The images are documents of these live installations and reveal a human desire to connect with nature, and the failure of that connection with the influence of commerce, consumerism, lifestyle and comfort.

Walter is a 2014 graduate of the prestigious Hunter College MFA program in Studio Art and received her BFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2006. Walter’s work has been featured in publications including The New York Times, New York Post, Seattle Times, Boston Globe, Courrier International, and Blouin Art Info.

She has participated in dozens of exhibitions at world-renowned institutions such as MOCA in Los Angeles, CA, Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, NJ, The Center for Photography in Woodstock, NY, The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, OH, Sonoma County Museum in Santa Rosa, CA, Tacoma Art Museum in Tacoma, WA, and the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA.

Walter has received multiple honors from the Magenta Foundation Flash Forward, HeadOn Photo Festival, Photolucida, Prix de la Photographie Paris, International Photography Awards, The Julia Margaret Cameron Award, and other organizations. She has been also awarded artist-in-residences at esteemed programs such as Montalvo Arts Center, MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, Marble House Project, VCCA, Red Gate Gallery in Beijing and BigCi in Bilpin, Australia (Environmental award). In 2020 she was the recipient of the Sony Alpha Female Award.
