Catalogue Note

Rebecca Warren’s representation of the female nude reflects on this traditional subject matter while also challenging its associations. Working in unfired clay and bronze, Warren produces sculptures with a rough, unfinished quality that emphasize the physicality of the clay. She addresses how the female form has been fetishized throughout history, referring to the imagery of artists such as Willem de Kooning, Helmut Newton, Degas and Picasso. These references are combined with Warren’s characteristic style and tactile process to result in a contemplation of gender, sculptural form, and the hierarchies involved with art history.
