Josephine Halvorson makes paintings on-site, face to face with an object in its environment. Often no more than an arm’s length away, she detects variations in texture, light, and temperature, transcribing these perceptions through the medium of paint. The result is an intimate portrait of the object, capturing both a natural likeness as well as the often unseen or overlooked character of her chosen subject.
Halvorson holds a BFA from The Cooper Union (2003) and a MFA from Columbia University (2007). She has exhibited widely in the United States and Europe and was a Fellow at the French Academy in Rome at the Villa Medici in 2015. She is the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship to Vienna (2003-4), a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Grant (2009), and a New York Foundation for the Arts Award (2010). She currently serves as a Critic in the MFA program in Painting at Yale University.
Josephine Halvorson lives and works out of Brooklyn, New York and western Massachusetts.
