Rebecca creates unique works of art. She is a paper artist whose work currently focuses on the reinvention of entomological cataloguing, display and the assemblage of shapes. Rebecca is fascinated with the process by which three-dimensional decorative forms materialise out of flat sheets of paper. Her work is a labour or love and repetition is key. Each piece is composed of hundreds, if not thousands of profiles.
Every shape is hand drawn and then intricately hand cut from carefully selected paper, focusing on recycling a medium that would otherwise be discarded and lost. Small details of colour, imagery and text are dissected into silhouettes that are then re-sculptured, pinned and encased. The aim is to transform an every day object into a piece of work that invites the viewer to see beyond its original source.
For the last few years Rebecca has exhibited continuously at Shows and Galleries worldwide. We were honoured to put on a show of her work at Katie&Jo, Parsons Green last year.
