Rebeccah Power is inspired by the landscape that surrounds her in Gippsland Victoria. She is interested in how the viewer perceives a landscape, before it is seen it could be anything. The Bass Coast in Victoria is home to rugged landscapes and changeable weather patterns. Rebeccah uses the elements of nature as the inspiration for her atmospheric paintings. She aims to remind the viewer to take note of the shapes and colours in nature that change overtime. She has always felt preoccupied by colour and form, remembering lining up sea shells and flowers on her window sill as a child. She now transforms colours and shapes in the landscapes she paints. On her practice she says, “(her art captures the bridge between formlessness and form resulting in work that could be described as hazy, ambiguous and atmospheric.”
Rebeccah graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2000 and has exhibited both locally and internationally. Recent awards include receiving the M Collection Award People’s Choice Award and The Copyright Agencies Creative Career Fund. She is currently preparing for an exhibition at the Alternating Current Art Space in South Yarra for 2021. Her work is held in private collections in Australia and overseas.
