Solo exhibition with Whitewater Contemporary 1st June -26th June 2024 ,

1 - 26 JUNE 2024

Rebecca Styles, Featured Artist

This June, following on from her Cape Cornwall collection of last autumn, Whitewater Contemporary presents new work by landscape artist Rebecca Styles.

Titled Hawthorn, Hedgerow and Heath, this exhibition continues Rebecca’s enquiry into the essence of ‘place’, with an emphasis on creating landscape with landscape - using local earth pigments, grit and charcoal with her oil paints. Inspired by ‘plein air’ sketches of West Cornwall’s diverse heathland flora, from windswept hawthorns to sculptural succulents, these paintings capture the vibrant colour and pattern of hedgerows and moorland in the full bloom of summer. They take the viewer on a walk along remote rural lanes, over Cornish hedges heavy with wildflowers, past ancient stone circles and through heat-hazed fields of long summer grass, lush with foxgloves, buttercups, meadow thistle and wild garlic.

A year at Thorp Perrow artist residency 2024

First residency blog is now published 


I am thrilled to become the first ever artist in residence at Thorp Perrow Arboretum , Bedale North Yorkshire . 

During my visits to Thorp Perrow this year I will be out and about with my paints making notes and sketches, and I very much hope that visitors will come and say hello if they see me, to chat about nature and learn more about its influence on my work. I feel honored to be given the chance to spend time exploring and painting these beautiful gardens, with their stunning trails and glades, important plant collections and champion trees. I will be busy all year in the park, and back at my studio I will be creating an arboretum collection of oil paintings for exhibition.”

As well as hunting for 'Perrow' pigments to add to my palette I'll also be hosting a series of public workshops and educational events that will continue throughout the whole of 2024.

Exhibition Aug 20th - Sept 17th 2022 

This unique collaboration between artist Rebecca Styles and poet Heather Mackay Young brings “paint, poetry and place” together in the extraordinary location of Uig’s semi-derelict Baile na Cille Church on the Isle of Lewis. 

Rebecca Styles’ series of large-scale paintings have been created onsite at Baile na Cille Church over several weeks, in the company of Scottish poet Heather Mackay Young, whose writings respond to the immediate environment and artwork being created there. With the decaying beauty of the ancient church in mind, the generations that have worshiped there over the centuries, and the relentless and unforgiving seasonality of the Western Isles, the work of both these artists reflects the circularity of all things - of life, death and rebirth -
