“Wood, metal, stone, the play of light on water, the effects of time on the observed (seen and felt) world are some of the material elements I’ve considered and used to forge and refine my personal vision. I construct works of richly textured topographical relief working both above the surface and below, excavating to reveal hidden layers that might reveal my artist’s truth.”
REBECCA SPIVACK received both her B.F.A. and M.F.A. from The Rhode Island School of Design. As a painter, muralist, and colorist, she joins a tradition of fine artists who have lent their creative talents to the discipline of interior design and architecture. During the 80s she maintained a studio in Paris. Upon returning to the U.S., a deepening interest in the mural form led her to the development of custom finishes, murals, and architectural panels favoring the use of integrated colored plasters. She has completed many site-specific commissions and collaborated with a number of prominent architects and interior designers. Her installations have been published in Architectural Digest, House & Garden, Interior Design, Elle Décor, New York Times, Interiors and Alaska Home magazines. She has received grants and awards from, among others, The Cite Internationale des Arts and Ministry of Exterior Affairs in Paris, France, and the Martha Boschen Porter Fund in Sharon, CT. Ms. Spivack was included in the American Craft Museum Exhibition, “Banquet: A Celebration of the American Table.” She has taught painting and drawing at Brown University, and at both Parsons School of Design and NYU Paris programs. She presently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
