ABOUT BECCA HEATH
About my practice
The processes and ideas that drive my practice are grounded in my lived experience of obsessions, compulsions and intrusive thoughts. In particular, I draw influence from the way that these anxious sensations affect my whole body and shift the way I perceive my surroundings.
On a personal level, my work allows me to reflect on and make sense of experiences that can be challenging to process and articulate. However, favouring an abstract approach to making, I seek to allow my art the potential to take on a life of its own that can also exist outside of its subject matter.
Working across a range of media and scales, my practice almost acts as a form of collecting, where I gradually accumulate a variety of elements, objects and ideas. These are then collaged together and function according to both the formula and the environment that they are shown in.
