Romy Hosford is a multimedia artist and educator and has taught at Roberts since 2011. She received her MFA degree in Visual Studies at the Visual Studies Workshop, Rochester, NY, in conjunction with The College at Brockport. Her work there centered in Photography, video, artists’ books, and installation art. Before returning to her native Rochester for graduate school she received both a BFA and MS in Art Education from Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, and taught public school for several years in Northern Virginia.
Her photo/video-based installation work can be described as storytelling through object, material, and historical contexts; often dealing with perception, definition, and expectation. In addition, it investigates the concept of memory - personal and cultural, remembering and forgetting. To foster a sense of the domestic, she utilizes found objects and imagery alongside created ceramic, fibers, mixed media, and photographic/media art elements. She exhibits locally and nationally and contributes to Afterimage: the journal of media arts and cultural criticism, lectures on REMIX and Digital Culture, and belongs to the Society for Photographic Education among other organizations.
