Maggie Rapuano, born in White Plains, New York, is a contemporary, interdisciplinary artist living and working in both Austin, Texas and Bremen, Germany. Her work explores the energy of contact and the transaction of feelings and experiences between the viewer and her pieces. Inspired by artists like Louise Bourgeois, Sophie Calle and her formative years in the punk music scene, Maggie started telling her stories through art.
Her work is delicate yet powerful, resembling theater stages and windows into a different reality. Maggie creates with objects, paint, found materials and uses size as a field of tension, sometimes forcing the viewer to get up close, getting intimate with the piece and with the self.
Maggie's work is part of permanent collections in Germany and the United States and has participated in exhibitions internationally. After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts at California College of Arts in Oakland, she has traveled the globe living in Germany and Scotland ultimately alternating between the United States and Germany.
