Becky Keyser has always enjoyed working from the model, and to this day the figure is central to her practice. Drawing has been an important and integral part of her development as an artist, and when she works the distinction between drawing, painting and photography becomes irrelevant.
She uses materials to play with these boundaries, working quickly to obtain a sense of immediacy. If she erases or corrects, she deliberately leaves a residual imagery, a kind of history visible within the piece. Marks come into and out of being leaving traces of themselves, changing and fading...a kind of thinning of the veil between what is seen and that which is felt. Becky is a graduate of the BA Hons. in Visual Art, Sherkin Island/DIT. She also attended Falmouth School of Art & Design at Foundation level.
Becky's work will be available soon to buy online as unframed canvases, and photographic prints on canvas, in the meantime please contact the artist for more details.
