Prospect 8: Rebecca Roberts Paintings
22 Oct 2000 – 17 Dec 2000
Rebecca Roberts. Untitled 1999. Oil on canvas, 31 x 46 cm.
The "Prospect" exhibitions are intended to expose the work of selected artists during the early stages of their careers. Rebecca Roberts, who lives in Halifax, is the eighth artist to participate in this series.
Working from photographs, Roberts makes small, lusciously executed paintings in which the nude female figure fills the pictorial field. In several of her paintings, raking light both disintegrates and sculpts the anatomy. Roberts interest in painterly figuration links her to British traditions exemplified by Lucian Freud and, more recently, by the celebrated Young British Artist Jenny Saville.
