REBECCA SMITH – VISUAL ARTIST

I am a Hampshire based artist, with a interdisciplinary fine art practice, living and working in the city of Winchester.

For the majority of my creative life I have been transfixed with the desire to capture the natural world. Living in the past somewhat, I take visual guidance from impressionism and romanticised notions of capturing changing light and the shifting of time. However, a sense of controlling or manipulating time within a landscape to create a sense of intimacy and one-ness have also been important for me too. Recent topics have included revealing the unseen, journey and the effects of time as a linear pathway.

I studied at The Winchester School of Art between 2009-2012, where I gained a BA (hons) and went on to work with the mental health charity Mind, providing therapy-directed art groups for individuals. I have participated in creative, cultural events including Hat Fair, Hampshire Open Studios and 10 Days Across Winchester and volunteered for local endeavours through various local charities.
