From highly sculptural ceramics, to industrial sculpture and experimental painting, the work of artist Rebecca Appleby is a continual exploration of the contemporary urban landscape. Examining the ever-present cohabitation and conflict between industry and nature.
Through a series of techniques developed over a 20-year career, Rebecca’s works are strongly defined by a series of marks and surface contusions that mimic both the manufactured process of industry and the seemingly sporadic, yet calculated occurrences found in nature. Her works explore and echo both the ephemeral & established solidity of her surroundings, offering the viewer thought-provoking pieces & an exemplary dialogue of colour, line and movement.
Born in Leeds, Rebecca is a highly respected artist, whose sculptural and painterly eye, allows her the diversity to go beyond the boundaries of her traditional background in ceramics, giving her the freedom to create vibrant and challenging work.
Rebecca trained at Edinburgh College of Art 1999-2001 (BA Ceramics) and currently lives and works in Yorkshire.
