In my work I tend to allow the material to inform my art. I also find inspiration in the often-overlooked and attempt to make it the focus of my work by recreating the emotions that minute details evoke in me. These details can be anything from subtle patterns in nature to simple stories or tales that I have come across and which have piqued my attention.

Rebecca McEwan

Rebecca McEwan is an emerging South Australian visual artist working in sculpture, painting, and drawing. Her inspiration comes from the minute details observed in nature. Through a variety of media she explores the emotions that these details evoke in her.
