Artist Statement: Pure fun – excess, decadence, lush, colour and textures on steroids. Whether you interpret the title as a drug reference or mass consumption it is simply all about pleasure and enjoyment.
The process of painting is for me a metaphor for life and creation. As we are a part of nature our energies flow through what we do and often the materials we use. For me the paint is often imbued with a sense of the Artist themselves. Applying and moving the medium around the canvas, offering the medium its own flow and path, and at other times controlling and orchestrating its position and presence, manipulating its lead, creates a tension, being again another state of flux. These random movements, both innate and subliminal, engendering form and structure, can often provide a sense of verity and validity.
Medium: Impasto on canvas board
Dimensions: 169 x 66 cms
CHG Director's Statement: Rebecca Pierce has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout Australia and overseas. She has been a finalist in major art prizes including the Glencore Percival Portrait Prize, the Mosman Art Prize, the Heysen Art Prize, the Fishers Ghost Art Prize, the Hawkesbury Art Prize, the Hunters Hill Art Prize, the ANL Maritime Art Prize and the Willoughby Art Prize. Rebecca’s work is represented in corporate and private collections in Australia and Internationally.
Rebecca primarily works with paint, inks and fine points on canvas and paper.
Her work initially with a design and decorative orientation harnesses these elements whilst exploring aspects of the natural and urban landscape. The interpretation of the human face and the reading of the landscape, effects of cyclical, emotional and climatic changes to ourselves and others responses to these are often drawn upon.The unpredictability of Rebecca’s subject, frequently rendered to create a third dimension, can often simultaneously create tension laced with elements of playfulness.
