About the Artists The collaborative duo known as RoCoCo is comprised of KC Rosenberg and Modesto Covarrubias. These interdisciplinary artists describe their practice as a dialog of making, and they are interested in the juxtaposition of materials and response to space (architectural and natural) in their exploration of complex emotional states, social justice, and contemporary culture. RoCoCo’s work most often takes form through sculptural installations, but has also included video, performance, drawing, painting, and audience participation. RoCoCo began collaborating in 2015, showing their first work at Mercury 20 Gallery in Oakland, California. They have continued to show work at such venues as the Oliver Arts Center in Oakland, Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, and at Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana (MACLA) in San Jose. They were artists-in-residence at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles in 2017. Heather Deyling is an artist and educator whose current and ongoing body of work, the “Invented Hybrids” series, includes works in drawing, glass and fiber-based sculpture. Her studio practice is driven by research and observation of natural forms, such as succulents, fungi and marine invertebrates. She earned an MFA in painting from Tyler School of Art at Temple University and a BFA from Kent State University. Deyling has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions across the United States. Recent projects and exhibitions include a residency and exhibition at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles and a public art project for the City of Emeryville Art in Public Places Bus Shelter Art Program. Deyling is Professor of Foundation Studies in eLearning at the Savannah College of Art and Design. She lives and works in San Francisco, CA. Joanna Ruckman is an Alameda-based interdisciplinary artist and MFA candidate at SFAI. She received her BA from Brown University in Cultural Anthropology and Visual Arts. Ruckman is a socially engaged public artist and activist working with the SF Poster Syndicate, as a Fellow at the YBCA, teaching Digital Printmaking at Berkeley City College, and is a resident artist at The Phoenix in Alameda, where she teaches printmaking workshops. Her work has been collected by the DeYoung Museum and SFMOMA.
