Object Detail

Of her practice Rebekah states “art is a process of discovery. Its finding meaning in the simplest of things and attempting to share it”

Through a series of collaborative drawings the dual roles of mother and artist are celebrated in all their chaos and complexity. Mother and child present a playful, yet carefully considered experiment in materiality, chance, composition, and compromise.

Motherhood is collaboration: a shifting, plucking and pulling forward of compatible element, with information and support feeding not one, but both ways. Rebekah and Selva Rasmussen's drawings plainly hold the complex beauty of this relationship at their surface. Their marks, placed together, buoy one another. Simultaneously compatible, yet clashing; presented with care, and equal importance.
