RISD (Rhode Island School of Design)
Rebecca Fogg was born in Washington, D.C. and has lived in the San Francisco Bay area since 1978. She formally studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and the Rochester Institute of Technology, and has been professionally involved with fine and graphic arts since 1972.
Rebecca has explored and combined diverse two dimensional media throughout her career. These include etching, painting, photography, and computer graphics. Much of her work is inspired by the flowing forms of water, and she works with nature’s patterns to create artwork with a recognizable yet fluidly abstract sensitivity. Her images often fuse highly representational and extremely atmospheric passages, evoking both the ethereal and tangible qualities of our world.
Rebecca has exhibited throughout the United States, as well as in Japan and Venezuela. Her work has been purchased or commissioned by numerous corporations and private individuals, and she has received grants from the city of Burlington, VT and the Center for Cultural Innovation (CCI). Her artistic affiliations have included Kala Institute (Berkeley, CA), the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Artists Gallery (San Francisco, CA), and the Pacific Art League (Palo Alto, CA).
In 2012, two of Rebecca's paintings were purchased for the permanent collection of the new San Francisco Public Utilities Commission building. Her most recent solo show was at Merced College (1/14-2/7/2013). In the fall of 2013 she'll spend a month at Zion National Park as their artist in residence.
