Rebecca Willcox

Rebecca Willcox is a Naarm based visual artist and graduate of the Master of Contemporary Art programme at the VCA.  Her multidisciplinary practice incorporates sculpture, ceramics, painting, printmaking, and photography, and is fuelled by an interest in notions of time, language, communication, and materiality. These concerns are channelled into a practice deeply embedded in the act of making.

For the past few years Willcox’s work has been heavily oriented towards ceramics, a medium that has facilitated her exploration of the possibilities of transposing ideas from linguistic theory onto a study of materiality, and the use of material to explore language. This exploration of language extends to considerations of the deep historical past involving the advent of writing systems, cultural use of language, and how we, as humans, communicate with the non-human world. A recent residency on the Mornington Peninsula has sparked the addition of a new medium to Willcox’s repertoire – sand – through which to explore modes of communication between the body and the landscape.
