Artist Statement

Rebecca has a Bachelor of Visual Arts, a Master of Art of the Public Space, and a Graduate Certificate in Creative and Professional Writing. Her creative practice is based on the development of many different artworks, from single medium to multi-disciplinary and multi-medium artworks that negotiate human and non-human relationships with concern to the natural world, the passing of time and globalised human environments. Rebecca's artworks mainly uses Australian flora and fauna, as well as architectural places she finds interesting or significant, to connect viewers to Australia's natural and urban ecologies. Her process reflects on the subjects of habitat loss, urbanisation, ecological distress, environmental change, and the effect of human action or infrastructure on natural ecologies. Her research is combined with site specificity, historical and literary readings, personal writings, and drawing, to form a platform for the creation of single or collective artworks. The intention of Rebecca's art practice is to encourage environmental and historical awareness. She aims to foster dialogical exchanges and raise environmental concerns, as well as project her own emotional connections in an Australian context, and when relevant, with regards to the global ecosystem.
