Gold Leaf White space

Works on Paper

Rebecca’s distinctive line of charcoal drawings have developed over the last 12 years. Time spent travelling and working in Nepal and India has given her unbending respect for the women who live there. Inspired by their strength, elegance, and humility in the face of social and environmental hardship, she has sought to pay homage to them through her drawings.

 

Drawing from her minds eye, Rebecca's drawings celebrate their strength, while capturing their sense of movement and the unmistakable “feel” of what it is to see these inspiringly ethereal paragons in their surroundings. Gradually over the years she has started to introduce the use of gold leaf, and cultural references in the form of block printing found in their saris, into her drawings. Using a technique she has developed, she draws on gold leaf to build beautiful and unusual drawings which pay homage to the women who evolve from within them.

 

Rebecca’s emphasis on traditional skills while incorporating beautifully crafted imagery is building a reputation with private and public collectors alike, both in the UK and abroad.
