// CV

Rebecca is a Melbourne-based artist who often makes expressionistic paintings of women, cats and flowers. Moving between scratchy, gestural mark-making, detail and abstraction her work features bold, exaggerated whimsical figures and objects in candy-coloured hues.

Her work creates nonlinear narratives, piecing together elements and materials to retell an unknown story. Like a leitmotif, visual motifs are repeated and revisited within individual works capturing abstract rhythms that hold elusive meaning within the sum of its often quite unrelated parts.
