'Rebecca's work can be triggered by a particular emotion which has been
provoked from an event, through text or other visual and sound stimuli. The
work can seem surreal, or contain dream-like situations caused by the
fragmentation of the figure or the addition of other objects. This creates
a conflict on canvas, giving a strengthened sense of emotion. Her work can
seem odd, uncomfortable and perhaps dark, but the pallet she chooses reduces
the pieces becoming too violent. Instead the work becomes strangely
comforting, as if the figures are in a state of anxiousness, but are in
familiar surroundings. Her painting technique at times can seem clumsy,
this heightens the idea of a psychological sense of reality rather then
reality itself. She is trying to get to a extreme feeling, thought or an
action felt rather then paint the event itself. This is why the body may at
times is fragmented or repeated to emphasise a feeling felt in her head.
It is apparent then to make connections to artists such as Susan Rothenberg,
Philip Guston and German Neo-expressionists such as Georg Baselitz who deal
with the human condition and paint alternative realities.
Rebecca graduated from Fine Art in 2005 and is currently living and working
in Bristol. She paints using oils and her works on paper generally are
created using charcoal, pastel and pencil.'
