For the next couple of weeks I will be featuring work by artists who are part of the New York studio group for women tART. First in this series is photographer and mixed media artist Rebecca Loyche, who has submitted photographs from her Leg series. In addition to In the Attic I have posted Cold March below, a favorite, but one that unfortunately does not benefit much by being cropped and placed beside our logo.
Update: LeisureArts observed a relationship between this work and that of Nicola Kuperus of Adult. As Loyche herself pointed out to me in email today both artists take cues from 70’s Vogue Fashion photography. Loyche’s work however, is both more personal, since she works with familiar places such as her old office, or her sister’s attic.
Rebecca Loyche grew up on horse farms in Upstate New York and moved to New York City in 1997. She received her Bachelors of Fine Art at Pratt Institute in Sculpture in 2001 and in 2006 she received her Masters of Fine Art in Combined Media at Hunter College. Recently accepted into the 2008 Bronx Museum Artist in the Marketplace program, Rebecca Loyche lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
