Rebecca Barnard

Rebecca creates powerful, textural images in honour of the landscape and the seasons. 

The physical process of making an image is as important to Rebecca, as the emotion evoked by the outcome, and the progression of each project will depend on mood, local experience and available materials.   Each piece has its own palette and story.  Most of the works are completed in the studio, with its facilities; a hob to melt wax for encaustic, running water, mountains of gathered objects and materials, allowing the work to evolve and form over time.  The West Country and Pembrokeshire are often centres of inspiration, but the visual natural world provides her with motivation wherever she travels.

 

My work comes from an organic place.  The earthy landscape combined with the elements from which it is made are what compels me to create.  To feel the texture and structure of a weathered object, or see the effects of the forces of our natural world at work, is like hearing a siren call to recreate it using my hands, paint, the materials around me.  To me, these things are thrilling and when combined with atmosphere, shape and the instinct to make; the whole is irresistible.”
