New Works by Rebecca Leveille
In Rebecca Leveille’s new work the notion of "crush" takes on multiple interconnected meanings: the deeply personal feeling of intimacy with, but also being overwhelmed by the artistic subject. Her figurative work explores these themes by interacting with the influence of a number of artists including Jim Shaw, Alice Neel and Walter Robinson. This notion of intimacy is further explored by the equal power she invests in symbolic personal, and pop culture images, bringing into question the viewers relationship with emotion and artistic subject matter. Her uses of pattern bring complex cultural associations of domesticity and colonial exoticism while also intimating the duality that occurs with the same memory or relationship.
