Becky Bailey’s work explores ritual practice as a means of navigating a fractured world. She reflects on efforts to keep ritual alive in a profit-driven environment that values production over all else. As part of her process, she excavates her memory and personal history, myths, rituals, and fables. Her interdisciplinary approach involves painting, drawing, collage, printmaking, sculpture, and installation. The results are objects that feel familiar but strange, and fragmented scenes that describe loneliness, domestic life, and community.
Before enrolling in the MFA program at UConn, Becky completed several residencies, including at Anderson Ranch Arts Center, The Studios at MASS MoCA, and Monson Arts Center, and has shown work in exhibitions across the U.S., including New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, an Massachusetts.
