Deborah Roberts is a contemporary artist living and working in Austin, Texas. Her mixed media work takes on a social commentary challenging conventional ideals of race and beauty to make room for the women of color who have been historically and notably excluded. By combining found and manipulated images with hand drawn and painted details, Roberts creates hybrid figures with a new identity and agency to find their way through the problematic narratives of American, African American and art history. Roberts received her MFA from Syracuse University, New York. In 2019, Roberts was selected to participate in the Robert Rauschenberg Residency while also being a finalist for the 2019 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition. She is a recipient of the 2018 Anonymous Was A Woman Grant and the 2016 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. Her work has been shown in various exhibitions across the United States and Europe and her work is held in international collections including Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; SFMOMA, San Francisco, California; Dallas Museum of Art, Texas; Scottish National Galleries, Edinburgh, UK / American Patrons of the National Library and Galleries of Scotland; ICA Boston, Massachusetts; Brooklyn Museum, New York; The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York; Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, Virginia; Manchester Art Gallery, UK; and LACMA, Los Angeles, California. She is currently represented by Stephen Friedman Gallery, London and Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, CA.[1]
