Francesca Fuchs (born 1965, London, England) received her BFA (1993) from the Wimbledon School of Art, London, and her MFA (Meisterschülerin) (1993) from the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Germany. Born in London and raised in Münster, Francesca Fuchs moved to the U.S. in 1996 for the Core Program at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. She makes paintings that consider closely the overlooked intimacies that shape our lives, giving careful attention to family relationships, objects of the everyday, quiet moments, and what art offers when it enters our personal spaces. Fuchs’ work has been shown in venues including The Whitechapel Art Gallery, London (1996); The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (2000); and The Suburban, Illinois (2013). She was the 2017 Josephine Mercy Heathcote Fellow at the MacDowell Colony, New Hampshire, and Art League Houston’s 2018 Texas Artist of the Year. Solo exhibitions include Inman Gallery, Houston, TX (2018); Talley Dunn Gallery, Dallas, TX (2015, 2012); Texas Gallery, Houston, TX (2013, 2010, 2005); and the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, TX (2007). Francesca Fuchs lives and works in Houston, TX.
