Rebecca Baumann Biography

Rebecca Baumann works are often kinetic and ephemeral in nature, her sculptures and installations seek to affect the audience through their experiential, momentary and emotive qualities. Baumann’s current area of interest, the relationship between color and emotion, has been influenced by further research into psychology, sociology, color theory and art history.

You'd Have To Be Bonkers: Australians In HK Related Press You'd Have To Be Bonkers: Australians In HK 31 March 2017, The Art Life

Is it only a week since Hong Kong? After a blur of skyscraper light shows, bamboo scaffolding, detour signs, cranes and ferries, it’s hard to believe it all happened.

Within this clever line up of pairs of contrasting foils on two floors, we find two historic films from the thirties (on video), spatially positioned reflective or refractively coloured planes, and a work with vertical coloured bands on a light gauzy curtain activated by a whirring fan and a nearby static photograph. This spread-out group show...
