Rebecca Pierce’s solo exhibition COLOURPLAY invites you to explore a world of organic forms imbued with saturated colours and contrasting textures. Pierce’s canvases burst with unrestrained colour and extreme volumes of impasto medium, creating a textural effect that plays with light and shadow, whilst weaving mesmerizing and unexpected narratives. The result the viewer captivated, and questioning may respond on both a visual and tactile level.

COLOURPLAY fuses Pierce’s impasto and ‘commentary’ works alongside her other disciplines of photography and sculpture.


“My work explores the ever-changing nature of form, utilising diverse mediums to heighten a sense of flux. I draw from the primal and sometimes tribal aspects of the subconscious, reflecting our frenetic pace and self-imposed pressures. I aim to make inks, paper, enamels, and impasto paints more visceral and physical, with a conscious choice of diverse mediums within a single work. Luminous colors and varying textures juxtaposed create tension and movement, attempting to conveying a message of constant change. For me, the painting process mirrors life and creation, as our energies flow through what we do. It’s a dance of control and allowing the medium at times to find its own path. Navigating whilst letting go”.



Rebecca is participating in the Eden Unearthed exhibition as it returns for its seventh year featuring over 30 stunning installations set amongst the breathtaking gardens at Eden. Each work captures an exceptional and ephemeral environmental element, often using recycled materials and plant products. Eden Unearthed is the largest privately-funded exhibition of its kind in Australia. The fabulous outdoor display garden features floating, suspended, sculptural and sound installations.


This work revisits Pierce’s past life in fashion and design and marries current multidisciplinary practices of painting, sculpture and photography. BED OF ROSES is a ‘soft sculpture’ developed by taking an existing 50 kilo 3-dimensional painting, scanning its image to create fixed aluminium sublimation wall panels and printed hanging fabric in the Japanese Noren style. The viewer is immersed by sitting within, surrounded by repetitive imagery, saturated colour and the feeling of envelopment. A ‘bed of roses’ that does not discriminate, all are welcomed.

New Work

“My practice is constantly evolving. Moving between painting, photography and sculpture, I am finding with time the transition between the three genres is becoming more fluid as subject and medium can overlap.

The genesis of a new series, BRIDGE AND FLOW, emerged from collecting the overspill of impasto paint from large canvases. Drying the paint, twisting, and molding it, creating an element that forms part of my sculptural works. Taking it a step further I intentionally spill and pour paint in large quantities on flat surfaces; when dry I peel and fold it. Incorporated with the manipulated paint is cotton rag paper that I dye, dry, and resin to create a stable base.

These artworks I believe have a natural, organic flow to them and to this point have been indoor pieces as wall or floor works. They may in time evolve and be placed externally taking on an ephemeral existence and subsequent demise.

I am developing works that can be situated on a wall or column and extending, giving the impression of slipping and sliding down to a flat surface, and then bleeding out and ‘blooming’.

I see the works as steppingstones in a body of water, migrating through one existence and on to the next. Titles of past works reflect this ‘Look Back, ‘Jumped Ship to a Better Place’, ‘Puddle’ and ‘Narcissus’s Swamp’. Layers of medium are heavily populated with tiny dots, a reflection of humanity and the masses.” – Rebecca Pierce

‘Narcissus’s Swamp’ was a finalist in the 2021 Fishers Ghost Art Prize – Contemporary Section and ‘Jumped Ship to a Better Place’ was selected and exhibited at the 2021 GreenWay Art Prize, receiving a Highly Commended from the adjudication panel. In 2023 ‘Look Back’ was selected as a finalist for the Du Rietz Art Prize.

Projects - Wishful thinking

“I have an ever growing exciting ‘to do’ and ‘wishful thinking’ list!

One such concept is to ‘wrap’ the entire building at 41 Military Road in one of my beach scenes. Structurally replacing all the existing windows, removing mullions and transoms, being left with single planes of glass ”. – Rebecca Pierce
