Rebecca Gould, Outlander, 2010

Rebecca Gould works with a range of mediums encompassing sculpture and video. Her practice encapsulates a folk-like aesthetic whilst drawing references from contemporary popular culture.

The subject matter of Rebecca’s essentially narrative work is at the intersection between a personal and a collective history. The aesthetic depicts a semi-fiction that simultaneously attracts and repels the viewer. The contrast between the often over-sized scale of the work with the grotesque and garish palette and the host of clichés associated with femininity that she is deliberately claiming for herself creates a permanent confusion of the trivial and the grandiose. Attraction and repulsion co-exist within the reading of the work, however both come together to create an uncomfortable yet harmonious language, a contrary prettiness.

Solo exhibitions include Beauty and The Beast at The Ucheldre Centre, Holyhead. Other exhibitions include O Dreamland: Transition by the sea, Kent, The Suitcase Project, Beaver Projects, Copenhagen and Magical Thinking, Mother Studios, London. Rebecca studied Sculpture at University of Wales Institute, Cardiff (1999 - 2002) and went on to complete her MA Fine Art at Central Saint Martin’s, London, graduating in 2005.

The artist was in the following exhibition:
The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp
