Installation view: Josie Love Roebuck presented by Latchkey Gallery, New York
Josie Love Roebuck, is an interdisciplinary artist who combines embroidery and painting to create intimate, autobiographical portraits that explore her experience growing up as an adopted, biracial woman in a predominantly white family and neighborhood. Her self-actualized paintings re-create the narratives of overcoming and healing from emotional trauma. Loaded with symbolism from her personal history and real instances in the artist’s childhood, the paintings show a figure in transformation that embody the duality of pain and triumph, exclusion and acceptance.
