Rebecca is inspired by the uncanny and the macabre. Her intricate compositions reflect a combined fascination of bizarre medical histories and a wonder of the structure and inner workings of both man and animals.
She finds influence from the 18th Century etchings of anatomical pioneer William Cheselden and the surreal assemblings of Frederik Ruysch. Her research into the histories of St Bartholomew’s and St Thomas’s hospitals in London further informs her visual narrative. Rebecca uses a combination of architectural decoration and a muted pallet in order to create a softness and beauty as a contrast to the invasiveness of surgery. Her detailed studies are executed using pen, ink and print.
