The lady and her dog
Rebecca explores narrative, authorship and creative process to bring together seemingly disparate ideas and references. Engaging with memory, identity and the digital cultural experience her work continually moves from the real to the imagined and the everyday to the fantastical.
The images and archetypes in this exhibition concern the symbolic relationship between man and woman. Woman defined as chaos, shapeless and shape shifting. Man, as odd, straight, detached, unmoving and remote.
Many of the works derive from a short story written by Anton Chekhov, The lady with the dog. The story follows a Russian banker and a young woman he meets in Yalta. Comprising 4 parts the story ends with no resolution, a study of human love and destiny.
