Rebecca Ackroyd's mixed-media abstract sculptures are truly fascinating in virtue of the connotative meaning behind them and the resources used for production. The artist employs all kinds of materials that include but are not limited to steel rebar, plaster, wax, acrylics, and chicken wire.
The mixed-media abstract sculptures are eerie and captivating. In terms of presentation, Rebecca Ackroyd produces installations that play with space and physical proportions — from the elongated legs of her transgressive characters to the larger-than-life foot. The work is targeted at "questioning relationships between drawing, abstraction, and figuration," which is supported by Rebecca Ackroyd's experimental approach. In a more socially direct manner, the artist also comments on the contemporary understanding of gender.
