Rebecca Farkas

Rebecca Farkas uses light to transform the most prosaic of materials into images of artificial beauty, exploring the duality between what is seen and how the image was created. Farkas investigates colour, light and material through photography, video and installation art, transforming spaces and finding new ways of seeing the everyday.

During her artist's residency at Croft the public had a chance to witness how Farkas achieves these transformations and to follow the process used in the making of the work; at once technically complex and deceptively simple.

Farkas grew up on a range of travelling circuses and settled in Herefordshire in 2005, before attaining a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. The circus has had a huge influence on her artistic practice and explains her attraction to light, colour and the power of transformation.
