Rebecca's distinctive oils on canvas are beautifully depicted portrayals of life on the land and the sea. The large ensemble cast of figures, boats and sea birds creates an impression of ceaseless activity, and this is heightened by the natural curves of the classic English harbour which provide movement and energy. Her palette is based strongly on the colours of the sea, with blues, greens and greys dominating the entire canvas.
Over the last few months Rebecca Lardner's name has been resounding throughout the contemporary art world. Since she won a major award in the Spring her whimsical paintings have been featured widely in the media, and demand for her work has turned her into one of the UK's most highly sought-after and collectable artists. Rebecca's genius lies in her ability to create engaging and animated harbour scenes that encapsulate everything that is most charming about British coastal life. The lively impression of ceaseless everyday activity has led art critics to acclaim her as 'the modern day Lowry', drawing comparisons between her naive creations and those of the great L.S.Lowry.
