For her first solo exhibition at Upfor, artist Rebecca Reeve debuts Sun Breathing, a new body of photographic work. Historically, she has inserted Venetian blinds, a grid-like object, into scenery as a means to capture, arrange and organize the landscape. Images in Sun Breathing alternate the grid with scenes where elements in the landscape itself are painted, resulting in pairs that echo the binary nature of breathing. Based in New York, NY, Rebecca Reeve (b. 1973 in London, England) holds a BFA from Bath Spa University, UK and MVA from the University of Sydney.
