Examining the ever-present cohabitation & conflict between industry & nature, the work of artist Rebecca Appleby is a continual exploration of the contemporary urban landscape.
Her sculptural ceramics & abstract paintings are strongly defined by deft mark making & surface contusions, mimicking both the manufactured process of industry & the seemingly sporadic, yet calculated occurrences found in nature. Strong flat colour and linear steel additions are a new introduction to the ceramic works adding further energy and strength.
More recently Rebecca has translated some of her ideas into steel to create a new series of metal sculptures. The works explore both the ephemeral & established solidity of her surroundings, offering the viewer thought-provoking works that echo our everyday.
