Rebecca Kaufman’s paintings offer a re-evaluation of perception using the ancient technology of painting to reflect on the addictive visual technologies that we rely so heavily upon today. Kaufman earned a BFA from the University of Tennessee and an MFA from San Francisco Art Institute, where she was awarded an MFA Fellowship, a Cadogan Scholarship, and an Outstanding Graduate Student Award. Recently, her work was published in the Pacific Coast Issue No. 133 of New American Paintings. She currently lives and works in San Francisco teaching and volunteering at Root Division, a nonprofit arts organization.
