Rebecca Newnham is a sculptor who often works with glass. Each work playfully integrates the natural world, science, and art, and they can be static or kinetic: some float or suspend or rotate.
Wall works are inspired by an experience of place, the painted facets merge with ambient reflection blending the image with the present. Free standing works interpret the world through scientific ideas such as fluid dynamics, waves of energy and sound.
Newnham's sculptures often have a glass skin. Light reflecting from this faceted glass surface changes as the viewer moves through the space adding to the impact of the work. Glass is painted with enamels, fired then cut, polished, and applied to wrap seamlessly around the form.
Newnham has works in private and museum collections; she alternates working on her own narrative pieces with site specific commissions.
