The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
Rebecca Scibilia utilises a variety of media for her works on paper, sourcing imagery popular culture including DVD covers, various book covers and celebrity magazines. Primarily using bold textas or paints, Scibilia’s images conjure an almost lurid colour palette. Often humourous, her work seemingly integrates her own phrases such as “bugger the gym” or draws upon text from popular culture. Rebecca Scibilia has been a regular studio artist at Arts Project Australia since 1999, and had her first solo exhibition at Arts Project in 2014. She has exhibited in numerous group shows including Spring 1883, The Establishment, Sydney, ‘Hybrid Making’ Project Ability Gallery, Scotland; ‘Heavenly Stems’, Neon Parc, Melbourne; and ‘Melbourne Art Fair’, Royal Exhibition Building. Her work is held in the Leeuwin Estate Collection in Western Australia.
