The Pattern Book by Rebecca Duckett-Wilkinson

21 March 2020 @ 11:00 am - 5 April 2020 @ 8:00 pm


Curated by Chammaine Tan

Rebecca Duckett-Wilkinson presents a unique and very personal small exhibition, The Pattern Book: a singular handmade book of thirty gouache pattern paintings and five giclee limited-edition prints. The Pattern Book is a visual diary of emotions across thirty daysresponses to the artist’s feelings after she awakens each day. They are feelings in colour, emerging as different patterns, physical manifestations of emotions. Colours reflect emotions: heat and coolness, calm and panic, success and frustration, happiness and sadness. These are not opposites. They intersect in unanticipated ways. The colours and emergent patterns are both spontaneous and elemental. 

The Malaysian artist Rebecca Duckett-Wilkinson is a weaver and textile designer by training. Colour, pattern and texture feature in all her works on paper. She is currently working to expand on the themes of women, sex and botany for a further solo exhibition on a much larger scale than her recent Forbidden Fruit show (Penang, 2019). Rebecca moves between her studios inPenang, Malaysia, and Piemonte, Italy.
