Rebecca Alston studied art at Harvard and at the Woodstock School of Art and has a degree from New York University. She has exhibited in Holland, Japan, and England as well as in Mississippi, Chicago, Kansas City, Washington D.C. and New York City.
Her newest body of art is the Urban Art Series. The drawings in this series have a basis in the theoretical processes of urban development.
“The lines may look random” Alston says, “but they create very definite forms and spaces.” She has invested her artworks with the energy of three distinct, yet interdependent realms of fracture. The axis of experimental reality in her artwork is the surface of the earth, though compromised by a thorough going overlay of urban intervention.
