Rebecca Barnard

Rebecca Barnard

Somerset based artist, Rebecca Barnard, was born in 1961 and is a multi-disciplinary visual and sound artist.  She is presently undertaking her MA in Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art and will complete in 2023.

Rebecca's work takes inspiration from human behaviour, our relationships with each other and ourselves, and this in turn intercepts with our connectedness to nature, mental wellbeing and the concept of the human flaw - our capacity for gain knowledge without learning.

Rebecca's practice incorporates sculpture, installation, sound and film as well as her first love, painting.  The work is labour intensive and process is as important as the emotion evoked by the outcome.

“The compulsion to make is not something I can choose to turn on and off.  It is innate and constant.   The trail which leads from a curious thought to a finished artwork is like hearing a siren call which is unstoppable.  To me, that call is thrilling and when combined with the instinct to make; the whole is irresistible.”

Rebecca exhibits widely and has been selected for many prestigious exhibitions including the Royal Academy, Royal West of England Academy, The Society of Women Artists and The Mall Galleries.  She is also an RWA Network member.  Her work is now in private collections both in the UK and internationally.
