Rebecca Nabarrete is a Los Angeles based artist, with a Bachelors from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her art work is collage like imagery painted on found paper which is enlarged and informs the narrative. Many times the found paper originates from everyday use, such as time card receipts, an oven user guide, or a medication prescription receipt.
Often occupying the composition are animals next to pills or a hand floating in front of a school of hammerhead sharks, inviting the viewer to psychologize it. The unnatural juxtaposition of wild animals, domestic objects & banal paper (often with utilitarian origin) creates a narrative that many times reminds humanity of the inescapable commonality we often share with animals and their instinctual behavior, which often our culture prides itself as a species to have shed through intellect and evolution, but many times the reoccurring theme in her paintings remind us of the subconscious behavior humans exhibit, similar to animals instincts, such as migration, and mating rituals.
