REBECCA SPIVACK  •  a dialogue with walls


As a painter, muralist and colorist, Rebecca Spivack follows in a long line of fine artists who have lent their creative talents to the discipline of interior design.  In addition to her accomplishments as a fine artist she develops custom finishes, murals and architectural screens.

Ms. Spivack received both her B.F.A. and M.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design.  From 1984-87, she maintained a studio in Paris.  Upon returning to the U.S., she moved to New York, where a deepening interest in the mural form led her painting to evolve into surface design for walls.

Though her techniques originate in the age-old custom of pigment-tinted walls, her painterly style is all her own.  Her work to date encompasses a complete visual language, motivated by landscape, light and a deep sense of place.  Her vocabulary consists of recurring motifs and textures from nature, combined with a serene sense geometry that relates to the architectural environment.  References to folk iconography as well as regional materials and colors bring depth to these fundamental themes, and draw upon Spivack’s extensive travels.

A sensitivity to composition, color and individual space has earned her a growing portfolio of sight-specific commissions on both coasts.  She has collaborated with a number of prominent architects and interior designers and her installations have been published in Architectural Digest, House & Garden, Interior Design, Elle Decor, New York Times and Interiors magazines. A list of references is available upon request.

Grants and awards include Cite Internationale des Arts and the Ministry of Exterior Affairs, (Paris, France), and the Martha Boschen Porter Fund, (Sharon, Connecticut).  Ms. Spivack was included in the Craft Museum exhibit: “Banquet: A Celebration of the American Table”). In addition, she has taught painting and drawing at Brown University, and at both Parsons and New York University in Paris.  She presently lives and works in New York City.
