Rebecca's sculpture is instantly recognisable: the structures are fluid, organic and undulating. Forms are influenced by the natural world, by science, by an understanding of materials gained from her hands on approach. As the sculpture is driven by the natural language of form, it sits well in a landscape and is often monumental. Other smaller works punctuate indoor spaces, playing with light on their reflective surfaces.
The organic curves and lines are strong and compliment architecture, garden design, the natural landscape. They can be static or kinetic, some float or suspend or rotate.
Recently Newnham installed WAVE, a commissioned, site specific, 15m floating installation which considers the ever increasing volume of information which invisibly surrounds us. The five sections have an internal steel structure, have a highly polished red surface and are invisibly chained together and anchored to allow the work to respond to wind and water flow. WAVE is red because in the colour spectrum, red appears at this wavelength.
