Rebecca Simon
ARTIST STATEMENT

Rebecca's paintings explore social and psychological tension. The figures depicted are often victims of circumstance, they are caught in vulnerable situations or perform actions permeated with a sense of disquiet. The work invites reflection on contemporary themes of femininity, societal norms, and power dynamics, while evoking an overall mood of uncertainty and poignancy. This work ultimately functions as metaphor for the enigmatic and often awkward elements of human experience. The paintings don’t draw finite conclusions, but instead act as narrative possibilities that remain open, ambiguous, unfinished.
