Examining the ever-present cohabitation & conflict between industry & nature, the work of artist Rebecca Appleby is a continual exploration & balance of structure, order, chaos and destruction.
From highly sculptural ceramics to experimental painting, Rebecca`s new work is a personal development of her previous sculpture – the exploration of abandoned industrial & architectural fragments inexorably destroyed by the ravages of time.
Abandonment of structures following economic collapse, natural disaster, drought and famine, disease, contamination, natural resource depletion, war, & man-made disaster inevitably has human fallout.
This new body of work investigates a material, human & personal response to the overwhelming and damaging impact of trauma, exploring new process’ and techniques to represent the pathos.
Works are exhibited & sold in the UK & abroad.
