Based in Somerset, her creative practice is rooted in a fascination for the paradoxes and complexities of human behaviour; our relationship with ourselves and the planet over which we have temporary guardianship.  She is interested in the struggle for understanding and balance, both as a species and as an independent human being. 

Her multi-disciplinary approach incorporates abstract painting, organic sculpture, sound and film and can take the form of both multi media installations and single media projects.  She uses a variety of materials to tell stories which detail and contextualise the world we have built around us.  The viewer is invited to experience a world of the unforeseeable, ingesting a sense of something off-kilter and the erratic, opposing forces which help shape our every-day decision making.

Rebecca Barnard has an MA Fine Art (Dist.) from Falmouth School of Art.  She exhibits throughout the UK and her work is now in private collections both at home and internationally,  She is a regular exhibitor at the Royal West of England Academy, Bath Society of Artists, The Society of Women Artists and many others.

"I am absorbed by the unintended consequences of decisions we make, both on a macro and micro level.  My work is inherently designed to echo that fragile place in form, process and viewer interaction."
