Born in sunny Australia in 1982 Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf is currently based in London. Her pieces predominantly focus on painting and portraiture, exploring themes surrounding female identity and mortality. She honed her skills at the Surrey Institute of Art & Design BA (hons) Fine Art and was awarded the Chelsea Arts Club Trust Award Grant to complete her MFA Fine Art at the Wimbledon College of Arts.
Rebecca is also the recipient of several awards and has exhibited extensively. Her work can be found in both public and private collections worldwide. What drew us towards her work is the blend of classic portraiture along with abstract elements that give it a signature look. She is also Vice President of the Society of Woman Artists where she is on the judging panel for their annual open exhibition as well as co-curating the final hang.
In the artist's own words "The question of meaning emerges as an essential part in this cycle of life, death and creation, in which the experience of our own mortality, and the transient nature of life play a vital role in the search for meaning and purpose, and almost always provide the fuel for the desire to create." Rebecca, we couldn't have said it better ourselves.
