Referencing Arte Povera, Rebecca Ward rarely uses a brush when painting, instead preferring traditional and found materials. Using an eclectic range of media including bleach, acrylic, spray paint, gouache and fabric dye, Ward continues her investigation of the relationship between the painted surface and its base. Her paintings are a result of everyday questioning and experimentation within the studio. A perceptual play of colour, texture and light is set into motion by the viewer’s interaction with the work.

In late April, Ward will spend several weeks in Italy creating new work in Rome and at the former atelier of Alighiero Boetti in Todi, Italy. Boetti’s atelier is a beautifully designed space on the estate of the Boetti family home overlooking the Umbrian countryside, where Alighiero’s eldest son Matteo now lives. The work created by Rebecca Ward during those weeks will be presented at the inaugural show at Matteo Boetti and Andrea Bizzarro’s gallery, Bibo’s Place. The show in Todi is a duo show with 89 year old Italian abstract painter Carla Accardi, Rebecca Ward – Carla Accardi: Women’s Genius, One Step Beyond will run from 18 May – 7 September 2013.

Ronchini Gallery have had a gallery space in Umbria since 1992 and the collaboration in bringing this young American artist to Europe marks the consolidation of decades of friendship between the Boetti and Ronchini families.
