Rebecca Stevenson: Carniflora

Rebecca Stevenson's resin sculptures exploit Baroque forms and kitsch subjects to explore issues around consumption, pleasure and desire. Using overtly sentimental subjects, the works are characterised by a fetishistic use of “wounding” and decoration that supplants or corrupts the object’s original meaning. Shifting between the beautiful and the grotesque, the work plays with expectations and assumptions of what constitutes (good and bad) “taste”, both on an aesthetic and sensory level.
