REBECCA REEVE
SUN BREATHING

January 3 – March 2, 2018
First Thursday opening January 3, 6:00 to 8:00pm

For her first solo exhibition at Upfor, artist Rebecca Reeve presents a new series of work in which she paints areas of natural landscape with vivid colors, then photographs them, patiently waiting to capture moments when the sunlight is right and breezes fall still. The resultant images meditate on changing seasons and feelings of vastness in pristine natural environments, presenting images both otherworldly and familiar.
