Coast is the latest collection of drawings by Melbourne artist Rebecca Jones, inspired by spending three summers at the beach. The line drawings provide cues for space, weight, shape and depth, while the watercolour paintings exude a sense of the tranquility and lightness.
Rebecca Jones presented the Coast series at Otomys Gallery (Abbotsford, VIC) in November and December 2016. "I hope this exhibition triggers memories of saltwater and sun on the skin and sand underneath your feet and the freedom that the beach brings", said Rebecca.
Rebecca Jones is known for her innovative use of technology to enhance traditional painting (and drawing) practices. Her recent work employs iPad painting/drawing applications to give new meaning to working en plain air.
Melbourne artist Rebecca Jones works closely with companies and individuals, including De Bortoli Wines and Brown Brothers Wines (Victoria) and DMG Australia (Western Australia), to enhance their visual campaigns with artistic elements.
Melbourne-based, Rebecca Jones has been a full-time practicing artist since 2005. Her work reflects on the Australian landscape, light and colour.
Rebecca has studied in Australia and New York, and has held numerous residencies around Victoria including at the City of Yarra.
She exhibits regularly and often conducts workshops about the use of new media in drawing practice.
