More About Rebecca Jacoby

IconInspires

What inspires you?

I'm inspired by the natural word, especially the stones and boulders of New England. I also love the corrosion of buildings and walls through nature, exposing textures, colors and shapes they reveal. Artists of many styles, especially the NY School, are an inspiration, as is vibrant color. My grandfather was an artist and also a big inspiration.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I enjoy starting with a blank piece of paper or canvas, applying a ground to create faint images from which I can pull more shapes through the use of a variety of mark-making tools I also use collage to add imagery and build sculptural surfaces. I turn the canvas as I work, so that I am always seeing increased possibilities for more imagery. Combining media such as ink, paint, marker and collage is a huge part of my process. Each medium "says" something different so a conversation is taking place.
