Bobbi Meier is a Chicago-based visual artist working in a variety of media.

Subversion and ambiguity are recurring themes in her work, as she engages sensibilities of seduction, humor, and discomfort. She manipulates materials and point of view to explore anatomical and natural worlds, imparting psychological meaning through production and challenging viewer perceptions.

Recent exhibitions include: Glass Curtain Gallery (Chicago, IL), The Franklin (Chicago, IL), Roots & Culture (Chicago, IL, forthcoming 2016), Las Esquinas Gallery (Kansas City, KS), and The Studios of Key West (Key West, FL). She has been awarded residencies at: Ragdale (Lake Forest, IL), Ox-Bow School of Art and Artist Residency (Saugatuck, MI), Anderson Ranch (Snowmass, CO), Sanskriti-Kendra (New Delhi, India), and Vermont Studio Center (Johnson, Vermont). Meier earned her MA in Art Education (2000) and MFA in Fiber and Material Studies (2011) at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
