ABOUT

Rebecca has always celebrated the decayed or neglected, holding it up to the light for others to see the inherent beauty contained in the discarded.

 

In contrast to the Fine Art Foundry in which she works; where bronze is painstakingly bent to the artists will, her new work focuses on the splashed aftermath of a pour. The free forms which would otherwise be melted down as scrap. The splashes of bronze pool, create and assert their form completely undirected, other than by their own flow and energy, asserting their own destiny. 

 

She takes inspiration from the beautiful irregularity of the ‘Overspill’. Using these natural creations, she patinates and polishes them before arranging them onto backgrounds of steel or bronze, forming completely unique and stunning art works.

 

She celebrates the inherent nature of bronze.

 

She works in partnership with it, elevating the discarded into something more.
