Rebecca is a UK visual artist with a (BA) Honours in Fine Art Mixed Media from the University of Westminster.
With a practice that spans moving image, photography, installation, and illustration, Rebecca explores complexities of the relationship between societies growing disconnection to the natural world and the capitalist system we live in, and how this affects mental health and the future of our planet.
The subjects of technology, artificial imitations, experiences within nature, and cultural products feature strongly in Rebecca's moving image work with water playing the main character.
She utilizes the unpredictable nature of the movements of the elements to respond to and question how much control we have in this world.
Water also participates in her photography alongside other subjects found in nature, with a focus on how the reflections alter with changes in weather and light source.
With these distortions created by surroundings factors, Rebecca's photography and moving image both bring into play an abstract idea of how we perceive and connect to the natural world that is thematically focused on humans' inherent survival through nature.
Rebecca has recently been researching the links between the Anthropocene and the impact our capitalist system has had on our world and is starting to pursue this closely in some of her latest moving images.
At this point, she is working towards building a creative project called Disconnect, a direct link to her practice to help educate others of the importance of changing our perception of our natural world and how we interact with it, in hopes we can start to rebuild the positive connection.
