WEBSITE(S)| Justin Roykovich

Justin Raphael Roykovich is a conceptual and research based artist working in and between New York, Washington DC, Minneapolis and now the Houston area. They received their MFA in Visual Art from the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University in 2014, where they were awarded the Ray Stark Film Prize and the Brovero Photography Prize. They received their BFA in Art and Visual Technology with departmental honors from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia in 2011. Their current practice explores relationships with one’s specific location, intersected with the psychic history that resides in that site. This happens primarily through lens-based research that explores the spatial exchanges between existing entities at those locations while documenting geo-spectral networked and system based transferences. They then create immersive installations using photographs, drawings, performances, video and found objects. Their work has been shown throughout the United States, internationally and is the collections of various private and public institutions. They have been an artist in residence at several national and international residencies, having most recently completed a year-long stay at the Galveston Artist Residency before coming to Rice.
