Uncovered Artists: Rebecca Shao

Senior HOD major Rebecca Shao uses geometry and sharp lines to depict hyper-realistic objects.

“Rebecca’s work focuses on the dialogue between colors, geometry, and lines. She depicts hyper-realistic objects, such as the human body, and then distorts them so that they no longer appears to be realistic at all. She is constantly finding new ways to break the boundaries of the canvas, both physically and figuratively, especially through the use of different mediums.”
