I’m in nyc this weekend to attend the Gala dinner at Dining by Design as a guest of Anthropologie. My new wallpaper mural will be a part of their tablescape installation. Of course, two days in, this city has not failed to inspire me. Here’s a list of moments:
1. Sunset run along west side hwy.
2. “Seymour: An Introduction” doc film at IFC (check my Instagram for a favorite quote from the film)
3. Good conversation about art and life with painter friend Brad Kunkle
4. Alabama Chanin Pop-Up at LF8 where I got that amazing handmade shirt above (with hand stitched MLK quote)
5. Inspiring wander around ABC Carpet & Home
6. The sun slanting through Washington Square Park
7. Dinner with friends at Comodo

Alchemy Tree
48” x 60”
acrylic on canvas

This piece sold last week and I composed an email to the collector explaining the inspiration behind the painting. I decided it would be nice to share it here. 

This piece was inspired by the mythological theory that when we are born we actually come down from the heavens to earth, and along the way we absorb the elements of the universe: copper, gold, silver, mercury, iron, etc. 
That is why there is an iron horse, silver arrows, gold apples, black stars. The bird in the water at the bottom represents a symbol from an old alchemical manual. The symbol is called Purgatio. The idea is that a dove dives directly into a bottled sea as a way of bringing high and low together. It’s a dichotomy. In a way, life and death. I added the element of the key at the bottom, as a way of saying that we are all seeking this knowledge. The tiny opening at the base with the drop of water is a way of saying that despite all the things we acquire and learn, you can’t take any of it with you. It’s about the journey, from heaven to earth, and back again. Transcendence. 
      

 

The Rural Experience - Part 4 For one night only, my Treehouse...





















The Rural Experience - Part 4

For one night only, my Treehouse studio was transformed into an non-traditional gallery, with wood floors, white walls and artwork hung salon style in the 3 story lofted space. As day fell to night, guests funneled into the glowing jewel-box cabin and ascended the spiral stairs on a quest to see all of the paintings in the Modern Mythology collection. The show-stopper was the 6’ x 8’ painting of birds and fish titled The Swarms which seemed to float overhead with glistening fish and tiny birds by the thousands. The Winged Night was suspended above my 1857 Pleyel piano and they danced there in the moonlight. 

It has been my dream for years to host an art show in this space. Due to the size and layout, we had to be very selective with our invite list, and I regret that I wasn’t able to accommodate everyone. But those who were there have become witness to a time and place… this evening under the stars in South Louisiana when an artist named Rebecca Rebouche opened her home brimming with paintings. We will never be here again. 

Thanks to my co-host Saladino Gallery who handled the framing, hoisting and hanging, including the block and tackle mount for the surfboard piece. 

And a special thanks to David - the artist who built this home in the woods and began it’s legacy as a home for artists. I’m humbled and honored to carry on the tradition. This show was a testament to his vision.

Thank you for the opportunity to share my artwork with you all,
Rebecca
