Manchester Metropolitan University (MA Contemporary Curation, BA (hons) Interactive Arts, 2013)

Rebecca Wild is a curator and graduate from Manchester Metropolitan University studying MA Contemporary curating (2013) and BA (Hons) Interactive arts (2012). She has exhibited previously in various locations around the U.K and has sold work to various art collectors. Rebecca has been an active part of her local community in Altrincham, curating 28 art exhibitions, 5 museum displays and 18 workshops.

 

Rebecca’s work is all about experimentation and spontaneity. Wild specializes in a technique called scanography, a photography technique that she approaches from a fine art perspective. She is interested in the unconventional means of taking a picture without the use of a digital camera and have been exploring new ways of creating an image.

 

Her work focuses around three central elements; colour, light and natural forms. The topic of choice is examining the flow and motion of fluids as they combine, collide or conform with other substances both man-made and natural. Her current series is an experiment into seeing what happens to her work when one of these three key elements is removed; in this instance ‘colour’. The focus of the work has dramatically shifted from something of aesthetic beauty to an inquisitive focus of the patterns and forms that are usually unseen with sharp contrasts and an ethereal quality. 

 

These organic images represents the beautiful yet fragile nature of fluids, filled with colliding energies and turbulent forms. These patterns are created when hydrophobic and hydrophilic fluids collide within certain lighting conditions. The circular nature of the work is reminiscent of petri dishes and microscopic views, examining a microcosm of reactions on a miniature scale.

 

These images are the only trace of their short lived existence, exemplifying the role of art in creating the illusion of permanence in a transitory world.
