Biography

Rebecca Brewer makes use of painterly abstraction to explore the overlooked and under-considered in the human and natural worlds. Working primarily in oil on wood, the artist has also produced large-scale felted tapestries and pigmented resin compositions. Using the specificities of material and the mechanisms of our perception, the artist creates an expressionistic, dynamic tension between representation and abstraction that tests our assumptions of the work’s process and its subjects. Brewer's solo exhibitions include Catriona Jeffries, Vancouver; Frye Art Museum, Seattle; Oakville Galleries, Canada (with Rochelle Goldberg); and Exercise, Vancouver, with group exhibitions including the Nanaimo Art Gallery; Vancouver Art Gallery; Marcelle Alix, Paris; and Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff. Brewer was the winner of the 2011 RBC Canadian Painting Competition.
