Rebecca Tucker, b. 1973, is a Lancashire born/London based painter, with a BA in Fine Art from Reading University 1996 and an alumni of the Turps Banana Art School Off Site Programme.
Her paintings are the result of a visual ‘discussion’ between abstract and more representational methods of depicting subjects. Her consistent focus is to explore the breadth of the spectrum between representation and abstraction. Each series of work starts with a subject but progresses towards abstraction as she explores the subject and renders it in two dimensions, examining line and shape, negative space and the effects of light.
Recent notable successes include being selected for the RWA Open 2023, selection for the Society of Women Artists Open at the Mall Galleries 2023, selection for the Royal Watercolour Society Open 2023 at Bankside Gallery, selection for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2022, being selected for the 2022 and 2021 ING Discerning Eye exhibitions at the Mall Galleries.
