Rebecca King is a visual artist with a focus on figurative painting. Her work aims to explore the relationship between private and personal space in the digital age.  By using found imagery she aims to challenge the viewers perception by creating a space characterized by a familiar yet unfamiliar ground.  By using bold brush strokes King manipulates the paint in a minimalist style, which often offsets the sentimentality of the source.  Her art is, in many ways, abstract but at the same time suggestive enough to help the observer fill the gaps, allowing us, ultimately, to see what we want to see.
