Interview for exhibition "Winter" at Gallery MAR, January, 2018



These paintings are an exploration of energy, transience and time;

The residue of a fleeting moment, the seen, and unseen vibrations of a living being.


Paintings evolve from direct and remembered observations of the natural world.

The figure (human and animal) has provided a generous vehicle for color, form and surface to evolve.

Paint and wax are layered, dripped and scraped to create a sense that the subject is still emerging…

 still 'becoming'.

                     Rebecca Kinkead


“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

                       Nikola Tesla
