Rebecca Sammon

Rebecca Sammon is a British artist currently living and working in London. Rebecca studied Fine Art at the University of Brighton and spent six months in Kansas studying Painting and Poetry. 

Following a period of time working in the fashion industry, Rebecca left London and travelled around Asia, drawing daily. She drew from imagination, trying to capture snippets of the colour and energy of the spaces she visited and upon her return to London developed her practice and completed The Drawing Intensive at the Royal Drawing School.

Rebecca’s work uses a bold and playful colour palette and she is influenced by the movement of the human body, as well as drawing upon mythology as a source of inspiration. She has recently shown works at Blue Shop Cottage, Bowes-Parris Gallery, Daniel Raphael Gallery, All Mouth Gallery amongst others and has work acquired by Soho House and private collections globally.

Rebecca's Style

Use of colour is a vital element of Rebecca’s work, she references Pierre Bonnard’s landscapes as endlessly inspiring, specifically how he could truly transport you to a different place with his palette, as well as Hilma AF Klint’s sense of balance in her pieces and how colours interact in her paintings as a great source of inspiration.

While her inspirations vary, Rebecca has always had a fascination with mythology. She loves the blurred lines of myths with factual origins, that over time become almost entirely fictional. Through this lens, she has always been inspired by the potential to create a story through art and likes her pieces to be open to interpretation - meaning different things to different people. 

Rebecca often works with Pencil & Oil Pastel on Paper, exploring the immediacy of working with Oil Pastels, creating rather solid flat planes of colour. She often works into the paper revealing and concealing the lines, which creates an element of chance to the work as sometimes things emerge when the materials combine, creating unexpected results.

"My aim with my work is to create something that feels close to music. This is something that I come back to again and again, I want the work to transport the viewer to another space for them to explore - something for me to keep aiming for." - Rebecca Sammon

FOLIOLE

"Foliole is my debut collection, the word Foliole relates to a small leaf shaped structure or something resembling a leaf - a recurrent symbol throughout this collection. The figures inhabiting Foliole are exploring imagined spaces, recurrent leafy shapes exist with other illusory forms that are presented alongside the figures exploring these worlds. These figures exist in a liminal space between the dream and the representational. These figures exist with symbols such as moving leaves, swaying trees and winged creatures that alter the way we see them, both obscuring and interacting within the frame." - Foliole, Rebecca Sammon
