'Pins and Needles' by Rebecca Foster-Clarke

Rebecca (b.1999) is a contemporary figurative artist currently living and working in Norwich, UK. Foster-Clarke paints the disconcerted nature of being a young woman. Her characters are intertwined in a tragicomedy where tongue-in-cheek humour and the ominous notion of the uncanny merge. The bright colour palette and near-feverish realism transcends to create an unsettling dreamlike world. Foster-Clarke’s works often depict women, insects, animals and still life scenes.

“Welcome to ‘Pins and Needles’, an exhibition dedicated to the dark underbelly of British village life. Inspired by films like “The Wicker Man,” this collection captures the unsettling undercurrents of village existence with a chilling twist. By delving into the age-old superstitions that shaped my childhood, my work invites viewers to explore the hidden recesses of the human psyche. Embark on an exploration of enigmatic narratives, where the supernatural seamlessly intertwines with the familiar.”
