A Sense of Discovery

Rebecca Reeve started the Through Looking series in 2014, using grid-like forms as a means to capture, arrange and organise the landscape. Offering a personalised view of national park areas in the USA, the images introduce blinds as an almost democratic character within the composition, marking scenery through equal units of space and shrouding the viewer with a limited view. An interdisciplinary approach to image-making, the collection combines digital photography with the traditional medium of painting; each blind was created en plein air in response to the location. The works offer a renewed perspective of our place within the world, evoking a mirror-like awareness of how interior and exterior landscapes are increasingly separated. Ultimately, they encourage us to meditate on the cardinal rhythms of natural life. Reeve has exhibited internationally at La Biennale de Montréal, the Museum of Latin American Art, Buenos Aires, and the Masur Museum of Art, Monroe, Louisiana. www.rebeccareeve.com.
