SMALL BOATS & FAMILY MATTERS

A new painting exhibition by Rebecca Scott

The Raft of the Medusa (1819) by French Romantic artist Théodore Géricault famously depicts the survivors of a shipwreck, starving and adrift on a makeshift raft. Géricault astonished viewers at the time by painting, in harrowing detail, not an antique and noble subject, but instead a gruesome news event of the time.

Géricault’s radical painting, combined with online imagery of present day migration, is the inspiration for Cumbrian artist Rebecca Scott’s latest exhibition ‘Small Boats & Family Matters’ opening at Cross Lane Projects in Kendal next month.

In a group of work titled ‘Migrant Paintings’ Scott reworks images of journeys connected to immigration and displacement, overlaying them with emojis, representing a universal language of youth and freedom in modern online culture.

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.
