MACHINATIONS

ARCHIVE GALLERY, HEATON COOPER STUDIO, GRASMERE

14 MARCH TO 31 MAY 2024

The exhibition features early work from the 1990’s which combine images of car engines with cut flower arrangements, associating the stereotypical ideology that engines represent masculinity and flowers femininity.

Rebecca Scott creates a luscious image, the seductive handling of the paint allowing the viewer to see both themes in the same beautiful ways, symbolising the juxtaposition of the contrived female and the powerful American Muscle Car, but creating an equality between the two.

The Kaleidoscope paintings from the 90’s were created using pre-digital photographs viewed through a kaleidoscope. These paintings feature non specific details of engines and flowers, resulting in captivating and abstract imagery.
