Josie Love Roebuck (b. 1995) is an interdisciplinary artist from Chattanooga, TN. She received her B.F.A with an emphasis in drawing and painting, from the University of Georgia (2019), and is currently pursuing her M.F.A at the University of Cincinnati. 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, in order for Roebuck to draw upon the past and present to convey a story of her experiences and her family’s experiences. She has exhibited her work at Denny Dimin Gallery (NY) forthcoming, Roy G Biv (OH) forthcoming, Christie's at Rockefeller Plaza (NY) forthcoming, NADA House (NY) forthcoming, LatchKey Gallery (NY), Contemporary Arts Center (OH), Made in Camp (OH), FRIGID Gallery (OH), Portrait Society Gallery (WI), Dutoit Gallery, Untitled Art Fair with Denny Dimin Gallery (online), Yeiser Art Center Gallery (KY), Site: Brooklyn Gallery (NY), BSB Gallery (online), Tabula Rosa (OH), Lupin Gallery (GA), Strohl Art Center (NY), and Fowler-Kellogg Gallery (NY).
