Rebecca Harper was born in London in 1989 where she still currently lives and works.

Her often large-scale paintings, underpinned by intense drawing, demonstrate a mode of reconstructing visual appearances; events, beliefs, dreams, memory and mediated imagery, whereby seamless, sometimes fictional fragmentations are rearranged and presented as plausible happenings. 

The diasporic condition presents itself in her paintings as an unfolding allegoric commentary on its life-source. The works are a contemplation of transience, a theatre in which human instinct compassionately addresses ideas of settlement, (the fixed image) a reaction to one’s transient restlessness and displacement and a complex dispersion of un-at-homeness and groundlessness. Her often large scale works allow for ‘paintings' potential to play voyeur, allowing distance enough to play the narrator without a need for the images to be fixed, settled or stable. The motives of her works are intended to be contradictory, at once both particular and general, restrained and ornate, whole and fragmented, detectable and imperceptible, relatable and distant, reflecting the complex duality of the human condition.

Harper studied at UWE Bristol 2008-2011, The Royal Drawing School 2012-2014 and Turps Art School 2016-2018, since 2014 having taught through the Royal Drawing School at various institutions; The Saatchi Gallery, The V&A Museum of Childhood, Cass Arts, Drawing School Central/Selfridges, The Southbank centre, The National Gallery; She was awarded The Michael Moritz residency Tuscany and The Modi Institute of Fine Art, India 2014.

Harper is represented in both public and private collections and has exhibited in numerous group shows including Christies London and New York and most recently been included in Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2018. She has also exhibited at ‘Artist of the Day’ at Flowers Gallery 2018, Supersimetrica Art Fair, The PieFactory/Turner Contemporary - Turner show in Margate and The Turps Gallery London. She is currently Artist in Residence for the Ryder Project at A.P.T in Deptford 2018-1 and recently won the ACS (Artists Collecting Society) Studio Prize 2018.
