Rebecca Rivas Rogers

For Rebecca Rivas Rogers drawing is primarily an exercise in problem solving: using the richness of color and form in decontextualized utilitarian materials like drywall tape and shipping boxes, she creates make-shift sculptures and drawings with a playful disorder that mirror the provisional nature of transient urban landscapes.

Originally from Northern Ireland, Rebecca worked for ten years as a graphic designer in Britain, San Francisco and Washington DC before becoming an art educator in Colombia, South America. Recent exhibitions include Studio, MFA Thesis show (Baltimore, MD, 2018); The Drawing Room, a site-specific installation at Arlington Arts Center (Arlington, VA, 2020) and Left Space, a site-specific group exhibition that Rivas-Rogers co-curated (Baltimore, MD, 2019). Rivas-Rogers holds a 2018 MFA in Studio Art from The Maryland Institute College of Art where she currently teaches color and drawing in the First Year Experience.
