WEEKEND 5: MISSION
NOV 10-11, SF CENTRAL
San Francisco, CA 94110
Lucky Rapp is a San Francisco based visual artist with a background in both fashion and art. Her self-taught style is often characterized as being text-based. Her methodology incorporates layers of resin, paint and acrylic forms that create texture and depth within the dialogue of her work. Lucky’s approach is process-oriented and physical. The end result, combines inquisitive statements that play with both language and the potency of graphical communication, while the three-dimensional nature of the layered resin fosters a sculptural reflective quality.
Lucky’s work has been collected and exhibited across the United States and Europe in solo and group shows in Antwerp, Belgium and Mannheim, Germany, as well as galleries and art fairs throughout the United States, including Themes & Projects Gallery, ArtHaus Gallery, DZINE Gallery, Andrea Schwartz Gallery, ARC Gallery, Adeeni Design Galerie, h u g o m e n t o, Playground Global, Slate Contemporary Gallery, ArtZone 461 Gallery, Campfire Gallery, Houston Art Fair, Los Angeles Affordable Art Fair, San Francisco ArtMarket and StARTup Art Fair San Francisco. Lucky’s work can be found in Michelin Chef Dominique Crenn’s restaurants (Atelier Crenn, Petit Crenn and Bar Crenn), the Capital One art collection, as well as frequently at the Roche Bobois San Francisco showroom. As an active member of the San Francisco art community she donates works to the annual Art for Aids Auction, the Hospitality House Auction, and the ArtSpan Auction.
Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, she has traveled extensively throughout Europe and Asia and has lived in Germany and Paris.
In the midst of the hard contrast of everyday life interpreted in black and white, deep underneath it all, always lies something even when it appears at first glance to be nothing at all. As an artist I find hard contrast interesting. What appears obvious for one may not be for another, and often it’s the process of understanding the layers that reveal the differences. – Lucky Rapp
