About the Artist
Rebecca Sammon (b.1984, British) is a contemporary visual artist whose bold, poetic pieces pulse with vibrant immediacy. Often Rebecca’s works are inspired by abstracted elements of nature at play with human forms within imagined landscapes, moving from suggestions of mythical narrative into the more ambiguous, fluid space of uncertainty. The balance of delicate figures move weightlessly through the work and the often bold colour combinations transport the figures from reality to a dream state world. Rebecca lives and works in London, UK.
About the Artwork
I have a fascination with antique astronomy maps and have been working on a series of drawings influenced by these. I use these maps as reference to sketch from and then later create pieces where ideas from the observational drawings seep in. Deep Blue Sky was a piece I drew from imagination triggered by the idea of creating a new kind of constellation scene with figures floating in the skies.
