Signed on Verso, includes certificate of authenticity.
Rebecca Bird (b.1973, Seattle, WA) works in painting, printmaking, animation and creates large scale painted installations. She often uses archival photography as source material in order to explore intersections of personal and collective memory. The detail and specificity of her work encapsulate actual and temporal lived experience, the real and perceptible, as a container for subjectivity and interior states.
In 2019 Bird completed "Intent & Assembly" a 91 foot long commissioned painting for the public lobby of Seattle Children's Research Institute. She has recently presented her work at the Bronx Museum, The Everhart Museum, and Lincoln Center. Her works are held in private and public collections in the US and abroad, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Her work has appeared in the Paris Review, Harper’s Magazine, Artforum.com and the New York Times.
Bird has made a lifelong study of the history and craft of painting with a special interest in traditional mediums. She received her BFA from the Cooper Union in 2000, having also attended the Yale Summer School of Art in 1999. She was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship in 2000-1 to study traditional Japanese painting in Kanazawa, Japan. Bird has also spent time in Egypt as an archeological illustrator. Rebecca Bird currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
This artwork is currently featured in "Art4Equality x Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness" group exhibition at The Untitled Space.
