The work of REBECCA BREWER (b. 1983) is an investigation into painterly abstraction and figuration, often engaging with visual allegories associated with Western esotericism, feminism and ‘alternative’ healing. Her personal research into these areas is indebted to the frameworks of neurodiversity, queerness and critical disability theory. Her works incorporate oil painting, printmaking, sculpture, wool felt and other textiles. Brewer received an MFA from Bard College, and a BFA from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design. She has had solo exhibitions at the Frye Art Museum, Seattle (2020); Oakville Galleries, Oakville, Canada (with Rochelle Goldberg, 2019); Catriona Jeffries, Vancouver (2014, 2016) and at Exercise, Vancouver (2012). Brewer lives and works on the territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), known by some as Vancouver.
