Paintings and Prints

Rebecca Swainston addresses the human condition in psychologically charged images. The figures are emotionally powerful and expressive and explore the relationship with the natural world as well as common objects. She is inspired by everyday experiences as well as ideas and beliefs from many cultures.

Using sketchbooks extensively, combining water colour and pen, exploiting her draughtsmanship to note and explore ideas. The sketchbooks are fascinating visual working documents from which the oil paintings originate.
