Rebecca Byrne Limited Edition
Rebecca Byrne is interested in the function of memory, mythology and the point where the natural world and humans meet. Her Limited Edition, which is part of our Curated Editions collection New Mythologies, is a fantastical landscape rooted in fragments of reality and fantasy.
‘I started researching extinct plants, mushrooms, trees, the invisible network underneath our feet, and then kept coming back to the studio and making these fantastical landscapes.’
Inspired by nostalgia and fantastical landscapes, Rebecca’s work is colourful, gestural, and touchingly optimistic. She talks to curator Becca Pelly Fry about her memories growing up on a farm on the outskirts of Chicago in the 1980s, how her work has changed since she moved to London, and the Limited Edition she’s made for our inaugural Curated Editions collection, New Mythologies.
