Becca Albee was born in Portland, Maine and currently lives and works in New York. Her work has appeared in exhibitions, screenings, and publications nationally and internationally, most recently at P·P·O·W, New York; Lump Gallery/Projects, Raleigh; and North Drive Press. She has attended residencies at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Atlantic Center for the Arts, and the Artist in the Marketplace program at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. She is currently a visiting artist at New York University’s Steinhardt School. She received an MFA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a BA from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. Becca will show a number of newspaper-based works in Piles, in which she replaces images from recent war-related news articles with amateur photographs of flowers taken by her uncle in the 1970s. The serialized presentation of these photo-collages addresses the standardization of images of violence and the widespread desensitization to visual representations of human suffering that is becoming endemic in American culture.
