Rebecca Baumann Once More With Feeling

19 September – 18 October 2014

Starkwhite is pleased to present Once More With Feeling an exhibition by Perth-based artist Rebecca Baumann from 20 September to 18 October, 2014.

“There is something intensely joyous in Rebecca Baumann’s artworks, celebratory moments of colour and action and curious puzzles that can, intriguingly, never be solved,” says critic John Barrett-Leonard. “She mixes intense colour, simple mechanical devices and moments of time, or perhaps moments out of time, in creating artworks that use colour and motion to point within, at a complex and varying field of emotion and experience.”

Once More With Feeling presents a new installation created using a repurposed trivision billboard. The rotating prisms ofiridescent acrylic project kaleidoscopic beams of light across the floor and onto the gallery walls. As Consuelo Cavaniglia says, “there is the interplay between natural and manufactured in that we see rainbows, but they come from refractions off plastic surfaces, rather than sunshine on water droplets. The work carries the irony of experiencing something mesmerising, miraculous even, but that which is plugged in, switched on and mechanised”.

Rebecca Baumann (born 1983) live and works in Perth, Australia. Recent solo exhibitions include: Automated Monochrome, IMA@Ksubi, Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia (2012); Untitled State of Mind, Gallery ON, Poznan, Poland (2010);Action #1: Artists in Response to City Spaces, Perth Cultural Centre, Perth, Australia, (2010); This Glorious Mess, Free Range Gallery, Perth, Australia (2009); and From the beginning; one more time, Fremantle Arts Centre, Perth, Australia (2009).
