Artist Statement

Rebecca Turner explores the relationship between space and what occupies it, and is particularly interested in the disruption of patterns of movement. Personal experiences of the world from her position, feeds the core of her practice to produce work that emanates presence and mystery. Her large astronomical forms which she associates in unlikely ways to the surrounding objects and architecture can be somewhat baffling. Like a mysterious or unworldly invasion these uncanny forms, while playing with gravitational limitations, interrupt the ease of an apparently predetermined trajectory. The viewer must negotiate their unavoidable presence wherever they are clinging, anchored like some parasitic creature feeding off our architecture.
