Rebecca Johnson
Artist/Art Educator
My current work draws upon personal experiences, memories and the psyche to channel images and thoughts into sculpture and painting. Stemming from a long-term commitment to drawing and journal keeping, I currently explore ideas through sculpture, painting and drawing. My work examines concepts such as Home, Love, and the Material. I am interested in the relationship between our physical bodies as home and our collective home, Mother Earth.
I have worked in various foundries around Melbourne and have a thorough knowledge of the bronze making process. I have worked as a Demonstrator in Sculpture at both Melbourne and Newcastle Universities. I am currently working as an Artist and Art Teacher.
