Rebecca Ward was born in 1984, Waco, Texas, receiving her B.F.A. from the University of Texas at Austin in 2006, and later in 2012, her M.F.A. at the School of Visual Arts, New York. Ward continues her investigation of colour and space, and her love affair with minimalism and abstraction, rarely using a brush when painting, instead preferring traditional and found materials. Works by the artist display her conscientious choice of using a wide variety of media including bleach, acrylic, spray paint, gouache and fabric dye. Ward has exhibited widely in the United States and internationally, most notably exhibitions organized by the Ronchini Gallery, Gallery+Artnesia, London (2013); Milk Gallery, Istanbul (2009); and Family Business, New York (2012). Rebecca Ward now lives and works in New York.
