The Motion of Transition Part 2 Alex (diptych)

Rebecca Pierce

Artist Statement:  This series, THE MOTION OF TRANSITION, is a response to numerous cases on Transgender Rights and bathroom facilities. It is my opinion that the majority of todays bathrooms are a bastion of segregation. They are like a filing system. And across the world many transgender people are banned from using bathrooms that align with their gender identity. Every day we are bombarded by pictograms and if nature calls we are guided by a person in pants or one in dress. The signage is not literal it only reveals how culture requires our gender to look and reveals the door it sees us walking through.

 

Medium: Acrylic on Canvas on ply
Dimensions: 120 x 120 cms 
Date: 2018

CHG Director's Statement: Pity she is averse to colour! Not so, Rebecca Pierce is addicted to any colour and combines it with energy, experimentation and dedication to her art. In fact she has mastered juggling life, art and business!

As such she doesn’t fit the usual artist profile, yet her commitment can never be questioned! In more recent years I have seen her need/want to utilize various mediums and media, with her open minded approach to learning about art and at the same time herself both seem never ending!

This eclectic exhibition introduces the viewer to landscape, seascape, portraiture, figurative, ice cream, signage and he earlier painting being inspired by folk law and hero worship is fascinating- i.e. she marvels at a great person and their deeds after delving into their history.

The visual effect and surface finish of her art demands attention and I have seen the style become more sophisticated over the years. It was 2012 when Rebecca had her last exhibition with CHG and much refinement has been evident.

A characteristic of one element of her media is the ‘impasto’ surface which is again present, albeit with more subtle colour than the past and her recent resin surface is compelling.

In more recent years Rebecca has gained ‘finalist’ recognition in suburban art competitions, however I cannot see her being satisfied with that for one minute! Her yearning for self development is a key driver within her personality, best illustrated by her ‘can do’ approach for almost anything she turns her hand to!

It’s that fearless approach I appreciate in her art that continues to see her art evolve or in her case change. There is no pattern or pathway with her art exploration, that’s the fun I think for her and certainly art viewers.
