Rebecca Biddle Moseman
January 18 – April 29, 2018
Reception March 29, 2018 6:30 - 8:00
Virginia photographer Rebecca Biddle Moseman, in her series ‘Into the Moon’s Room,’ tells the story of “a boy’s honor and oath to his deceased aunt to carry on the story they created and threaded together about a black bird, and the moon.”
“Oh, to go where the clouds sleep, where the moons dance and the stars weep. I went into the moon’s room, Zoom, Zoom. There were stars in his closet and clouds in his bed, and lying in the corner a black bird with her feathery black head.”
“Into the Moon’s Room” will be on view in the Griffin Museum’s Atelier Gallery at the Greater Boston Stage Company in Stoneham, MA, January 18 – April 29, 2018. A reception will be held on March 29, 2018 from 6:30-8pm.
“Moseman is an active observer,” says Paula Tognarelli, the executive director of the Griffin Museum of Photography. “She sees through an artist’s eye that tunes her experience of the world around her. Through her art making she questions, compares, responds and articulates using the language of the photograph. Moseman’s sons are quite natural participants in her storytelling.”
Moseman received her BA in art from Virginia Tech in 1997, and her MFA in graphic design from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in 2001. She has been a professional graphic designer for the past 20 years, and a freelance/ fine art photographer for the past six years.
