Statement

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 uses the language of abstract painting to examine the canvas as a physical object. The material is ruptured, sewn, unraveled, and painted with particular attention to balancing line, form, and space. In doing so, her work inevitably references the gendered roles associated with craft and medium, exploring femininity through handmade objects. Ward has exhibited widely in the United States and internationally, most notably exhibitions organized by the Ronchini Gallery, London (2014, 2013); Luxembourg & Dayan (2015, 2014); and Family Business, New York (2012). Rebecca Ward now lives and works in New York.
