Rebecca Warren

Rebecca Warren is a sculptor working in a variety of materials, including clay, bronze, and steel. She also constructs vitrines and wall-based collages using neon, wool, pompoms, paper, thread, and less identifiable materials. Her bronze and unfired-clay sculptures are protean, corporeal presences. Sometimes cartoonish or eroticized, they are like beings made from parts of other beings, or figures in different postures at different times. When painted, their surfaces blend areas that evoke flesh, fabric, light reflection, or simply pigment itself. Conversely, the large steel constructions establish a kind of elegant negative presence, like extra-dimensional intrusions into a given space. Her vitrines are neon-lit dioramas of places, moments, or states beneath the surfaces of the world, while the collages operate like signs announcing pleasurable but hard-to-pinpoint states of mind, slices of reality materialized almost — but not quite — without her aid.

Rebecca Warren (b. 1965) lives and works in London. Her work was included in the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011 and she has had one-person exhibitions at numerous museums, most recently the Dallas Museum of Art, Musée National Eugène Delacroix in Paris, Tate St. Ives in the United Kingdom, and Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles in France.
