Artist Profiles » Rebecca Rose

Rebecca Rose“Searching the beach for shells has been a delight for me for as long as I can remember, starting as a child in Sunshine Bay in the Marlborough Sounds and now continuing with our three children on the beaches near our Island Bay home. This interaction between humans and the coastline is timeless, it is a place of freedom, fun and somewhere that the spirit can soar. This has been the inspiration for this sea people series and I have chosen stainless steel as it captures the silver light so often reflected on the sea.”

Rebecca trained initially as a landscape designer. Her love of gardens and outdoor spaces sparked a desire to create artworks for these arenas. Training under Theo Janssen during 1990-1993 Rebecca worked in bronze.

A desire to build larger pieces led her to exploring concrete as a medium. From 1995-2000 Rebecca completed five series of tall figurative works in concrete, now found in gardens throughout the country. These include a gathering of nine pieces at Government House, Wellington.

Rebecca’s recent work has focused on the cyclic nature of life, influenced by the arrival of her children. During this time she has used recycled hardwoods, mild steel and stainless steel to create a number of abstract pieces.

Rebecca, her partner Matthew Chamberlain and their three young children live and work from a dramatic home / studio in Island Bay. The rugged South Coast of Wellington has continued to have influence on all Rebecca’s works.
