Rebecca Wallis was born in the UK, she has lived and practised between London and Auckland since finishing her first degree in Fine Arts in 1988. Her art practice was cemented in 1995 with a Masters Degree in Visual Arts from Goldsmiths College, London.
Rebecca provokes, using the object, the allusive experiences of the Real. She makes associations between the corporeal and the painterly, to reveal the ‘beyond, behind and beneath’. Her recent methods characteristically involve simple and unconventional gestures, where she refers to herself as a conduit for the interaction between materials.
Rebecca’s paintings are held in a number of important national art collections, including the James Wallace Arts Trust and the Walker & Hall collection.
