Born 1995 in Chattanooga, TN.
Josie Love Roebuck’s process addresses the contemporary complexity of identifying as biracial through symbolizing pain and triumph, exclusion, and acceptance. The act of Roebuck sewing together portraits has allowed her canvas to become her paper and her needle to become her pen. Roebuck draws upon her past and present to convey a story of personal and family experience.
Roebuck has exhibited internationally at Kunstheille Krems Art Museum (AUT) and domestically: Kavi Gupta Gallery, IL forthcoming, Akron Art Museum, OH, New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art partnered with University of Southern Indiana, IN, Denny Dimin Gallery, NY, Christie’s at Rockefeller Plaza in collaboration with 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair, NY, LatchKey Gallery, NY, and Strohl Art Center (NY).
Roebuck currently teaches at the University of Cincinnati where she received her MFA, 2021. She received her BFA from the University of Georgia, 2019.
