For her first solo exhibition at Upfor, artist Rebecca Reeve debuts Sun Breathing, a new body of photographs. Historically, she has inserted grid-like objects such as Venetian blinds into scenery as a means to capture, arrange and organize the landscape. Images in Sun Breathing alternate the grid with scenes where elements in the landscape itself are painted in vivid colors. Both kinds of visual intervention confuse sensory perception.
Rebecca Reeve lives and works in New York, NY. Landscape, and its complex relationship to humanity, often serves as the foundation of her lush photographic works. Reeve was Artist in Residence at Stoneleaf Retreat, NY (2018), Joshua Tree National Park, CA (2016) and Everglades National Park, FL (2013). Numerous publications have featured her work, including Whitewall Magazine, Wall Street International and Lenscratch. Her new work, Sun Breathing, will appear in Aesthetica Magazine’s forthcoming December/January edition. Reeve holds an MVA from the University of Sydney, Australia and BFA from Bath Spa University, UK.
