BIOGRAPHY

Rebecca Latourette Connolly is a London based artist working in painting and sculpture. Central to her work is a binary of emotions: pain, anxiety, isolation, and revulsion, in contrast to: comfort, care, connection, and beauty. She is interested in how these oppositions create narratives of human experience, specifically, an embodied experience that materially speaks to the visceral sensations of what it is to be in a body and interact with the self and others.


Latourette Connolly’s work is particularly concerned with characterizing trauma-induced psychological states. Using anthropomorphism as a vehicle, she examines the personified characteristics of trauma and dissociative states as autonomous entities. She is interested in how these entities occupy space within the self, and how this effects the subject’s perceptions of embodiment.
