Connections – Transitions – Movement
Dealing with issues of anxiety, adolescence, mindfulness, environmental and political impacts of 2020. Rebecca’s work dismantles them with forms, materials, photographs and research videos. The work is subtle, with interventions of shapes and forms to convey a narrative or emotion. Using domestic and mundane materials, photographic material in square social media formats, influenced by zoom discussions and written text by fellow participating artists. Rebecca effectuates those hidden, silent moments of thought and the longing of human connection/touch during the pandemic.
Rebecca F Hardy is a multi-disciplined artist; her work is the prolonged fascination with cataloguing artifacts, repetitive movements, and the subtlety of objects. Exploration of materials and relationships between surface and object, colour, layers, and patterns drives the process. Relatively the artwork relates to the conduct of human nature, its behaviour to perform consciously and subconsciously and the complexity of emotions upon the individual.
Research, exploration and use of human anatomy, domestic objects and every so often her own fluttering state of mind are embedded in the work. Making her sculptures and installations act as vessels and metaphors and co-exist with an array of materials and the space it temporarily consists in.
