Rebecca Byrne

(b 1968United States. Lives and works in London)

Rebecca Byrne’s uncanny and fantastical landscapes are rooted in fragments of memory, reality and fantasy. They explore our relationship to the environment by referencing images of extinct and existing plant life that never actually co-existed, creating pictures of nature in flux. She paints on canvas and aluminum, as well as up to nine-metre-long sheets of paper, which she uses to create immersive site-responsive installations that can be rolled up and reinterpreted in another location. She is interested in the psychological impact of spaces, both man-made and natural; as such, she presents strange landscapes that reflect an interior world.
