Paintings // Rebecca Hastings

4

Adelaide artist Rebecca Hastings’ recent work explores themes of maternal ambivalence and subverts the sentimental romantic ideal of motherhood. Transgressing the traditional image of mother and child, Hastings charts the complexities and contradictions of motherhood, where emotions see-saw between ambivalence, affection and aggression.

She describes her works as “psychologically charged images which beckon us into an unsettling and perhaps not-so make-believe world, in which the child is strange, other-worldly, confrontational and playful.”
