Rebecca Thomson

Rebecca Thomson’s work is a quiet and sometimes haunting homage to domestic handcrafts. She uses a range of drawing, print and collage techniques to execute highly detailed imagery. Items of domestic ephemera - loaded as they are with nostalgia and poignancy - are an important resource for Thomson: vintage papers, fabrics and embroideries are either represented in or incorporated into her work. The original object and its image are often hard to separate as Thomson generates a convincing trompe l’oeil effect by printing directly from fabric and lace remnants.
