ART HOUSES + CAFES
Three artists who came together during lockdown to support each other remotely across the Firth of Forth, the water being the link between them while they were physically separated. They are delighted to ‘assemble’ together to share our work.
Rebecca’s work in both painting and ceramics explores constantly recurring themes of the process of the Journey; loss, leaving, exploring, enduring, finding, being found, and faith which sustains throughout every storm or sunburst
Working mainly in ceramics & painting, my passion for colour and mark-making informs my work in a constant quest to create painterly surfaces and storytelling & questioning opportunities. I seek to open up an interactive dialogue with the viewer, through the physical tangible and tactile nature of the object. The physical act of Making is deeply satisfying, and I love handbuilding, slab techniques, and layering glazes in multiple firings. I work a lot around boat shapes as signifying vessels for contemplation about the narrative of journeys, those who journey, and the experience of loss, memory and transition over time. As a migrant in my childhood my experiences of loss, leaving, and arrival, embarkation still inform my work and thinking, particularly as I contemplate the shared experiences of other migrant peoples. My faith infuses all of my art, being the life force carrying the vessels of contemplation on their journeys.
