Rosalyn Bodycomb’s paintings stand as both a respite from and a space in which to contemplate the chaotic world around us. Her work captures the deep intricacies of the natural world and beckons us to imagine our way in. 

She received a Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Award in 2005, a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in 2007, and a Pollock-Krasner Grant in 2009.  Her work is in the Permanent Collection of the Dallas Museum of Art and many private collections across the United States.

She was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, spent her childhood in Southern California, studied Printmaking (BFA) and Painting (MFA) in Texas, and currently lives, and works in New York City.
