THE RETURN OF IMPASTO

A much loved series that made us all want to ‘EAT our Art’  is back!

Rebecca began experimenting with impasto over 14 years ago. This developed into a series that has seen works that have featured in exhibitions in Los Angeles, Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia. (You can see a selection of older and more recent works in the Impasto Series if you click here). This month in Rebecca’s most recent Exhibition, ‘Like baking a Cake’, she revisits this series in a new light.

Art has never looked so delicious…… Is it icing? Cake Batter? A dollop of cream? Lemon Meringue Pie? Pavlova ? ……These thick, lustrous swathes of paint rise above the canvas surface to create a 3D effect shaped into flowers. Adding more ingredients to the cake…..Bright vivid colours and intricate dotted detail on each petal and leaf combines to create a scrumptious masterpiece you will want a slice of!
