Rebecca Pearson
Inside, Outside

Mixed media, found objects
Dimensions variable

Rebecca Pearson is a recent graduate from the National Art School in Sydney. She enjoys working with a wide variety of materials, often using found objects to create small sculptures that provide inspiration for her paintings. In this series of work, Inside, Outside, Rebecca creates small poetic worlds in which insects and animals are confined to fragile and slightly surreal environments. These miniature spaces echo the changing dimensions of our own tenuous environment, where things once taken for granted, like the common green, are becoming more precious. The use of glass objects in the sculptures causes us to see surface reflections of the outside world, even as we are observing these interior environments and the creatures that inhabit them.
