Rebecca Zastany Wilson
Rebecca Zastany is an eclectic artist who creates mixed-media paintings. The entire body of her work exhibits a pervasive theme of re-purposing and appropriating of self. Zastany’s exploration of various ways to reuse and re-purpose materials makes her artwork emotionally and economically accessible. The theme of re-purposing is not limited only to antiquated objects, but also extends to the imagery that Zastany often reuses over and over again. This repetition gives the same image a continually renewed purpose and meaning.
Zastany deftly combines child-like motifs, current imagery, and a range of vintage and modern materials to evoke memory, endearment, conflict, and an intuitive connection to non-linear time and space. Zastany’s haunting juxtaposition of peaceful grays and candy colors connects the viewer to both the past and present.
