a British- Israeli artist. From an early age Rebecca frequented art galleries in the UK and Europe and explored many art styles from the Old Masters to Aboriginal Art.
Inspired by Kandinsky, Titian and other outstanding colourists she developed a passion for colour which informs all her work whatever the style.
Other major influences are Chagall and the contemporary Theo Tobiasse - Curiosity and experimentation have led her in many directions. Today she creates work in four main styles - Spin Art, Cubism Acrylics and Mixed Media.
Along with Fine Art Rebecca studied Fashion and Textiles. The combination of these disciplines has produced an exciting and genuinely original Bergson style. Bright acrylics are complemented by collage techniques. Vibrant paintings gain additional substance and texture from the use of carefully selected materials be it cloth or matchsticks.
You will be thrilled by the movement in her Spin Art works. Paint is placed on the canvas board in strategic positions and spun on a mechanic wheel at controlled speeds creating powerful dynamic effects from meteors hurtling through space to rush hour Manhattan. The prepared canvas is worked with techniques such as scraping, etching, modelling and layering.
Thus broad sweeps of colour and movement create the background and context for painstaking attention to detail. It is the juxtaposition of the macro “mechanical” spin art with micro handiwork that creates the intriguing and evocative representations which are characteristic of her work.
Articulating her vision as an artist Rebecca states, “For me art has to be tangible; you have to join the artist on her journey from conception to execution. My paintings are all accessible in that they represent recognisable images rather than subjective abstraction.
Human beings experience the world through all their senses so for me there is no boundary between touch and sight. The work is also very personal reflecting my feelings and fantasies about the world. I like to paint in a whimsical way.
