~ Rebecca Wallis
UK / NZ, (b. 1964)
~ Powerful. Sublime. And always thought-provoking ~ Rebecca Wallis is an extraordinary artist whose voice we are privileged to share ~ in a new language of painting.
Rebecca draws deeply from her own life to make analogies in her work – physical manifestations of her experiences as a mum. As a woman. And as an artist trying to make sense of her place in a world that words simply can't lend themselves to – especially in moments of anxiety and abjection. Or, as the artist puts it, “The parts of ourselves and of life that we don’t include, that are unacceptable or difficult to represent through words.”
