Portrait painting

Portrait by Rebecca Chitticks

This sphere that we participate in casually within our day to day life seeps into our unconscious and I feel this influences my artistic practise.

Whilst browsing through feeds and skimming streams of data I am constantly soaking up ideas and finding relationships, imagined narratives between disparate threads of information, fragments of pictures, colours and these are used as my references.

Oil paint acts as a conduit through which I am able to convey the fleetingness and allure of beauty, I hope to incite emotion through my choice of imagery and colour palette. Whilst the ideas, hopes and intentions of the action are transient the painting remains constant.

I’m a lesbian that paints primarily male subjects, I feel my work seeks to bring balance to the realm of portraiture which is saturated with paintings of women by heterosexual male artists.
