Becky Allen lives and works in London UK, she received her MA in Visual Communication from the Royal College of Art, London in 2013.
Becky Allen`s work combines an interest of Comparative Mythology, Superstition and Religion with the embodiment of things we cannot see. With her use of drawing she appeals to a human desire to know more.
Her detailed line drawings, by pen, pencil or needle, demonstrate the delicate beauty of her subjects. Whether it be natural elements such as tree bark or hand woven patterns, the forms she works with engage with the notion of a transformative element, being fascinated by the inchoate nature of form and capturing the moment that it borders both reality and abstraction.
For Field Trip, Becky has been exploring local sites of natural beauty, foraging for broken branches and loose stones as a response to her work on Creative Mythology from around the world. These works have manifested to combine both drawn and sculptural elements, a new venture from the artist to explore the universal fascination of our beginnings.
