This series is named after a song by ‘Average white Band’ and was painted just after my 21’st Birthday. Every year on this day, my friends bake me a rainbow cake, but this year was the first year they didn’t, which I took as a sign of me getting old. So I decided to make my own life size abstract take on a slice of rainbow cake referencing various situations going on in my life at this time. Thinking in depth at this point too about what a racist world we live in after having a conversation with a friend who had experienced it first hand. The black and white think chunky paint represents unity.

Rebecca Gilpin is a London born artist currently working in central London. She specialises in abstract painting on a large scale, taking inspiration from different periods between ancient art and popular culture - cave etchings to record covers. She graduated with a first in Fine Art from the University of Oxford Brookes in 2018, followed by an MA in 2019. As part of her technical process, she has built a table-like contraption, whereby the gradient of the painting surface can be altered to change the final composition. Her repetitive technique of staining unprimed canvas with acrylic and water was first witnessed in India as a child. Her striking colour palette embodies the wonders of the natural world. She’s drawn to harmonies in music and looking back at the origins of music and art, homing in on the interesting moments where the two collide throughout time. Each painting tells a story, whether it be autobiographical or something she has read or seen. She believes that everything is connected on her journey to understanding the world. She plays with the idea of chance by using water as a medium. She works with different producers and musicians for each series of work creating and blending dissimilar genres, mirroring how she merges or references different ideas and concepts from the history of painting. Rebecca has hosted 4 solo shows in Soho and been part of 9 group shows in the UK. Her work has been bought by Oxford Brookes University’s Art Fund and presently hangs in the Vice President’s office. Another of her pieces was selected by the Chelsea and Westminster hospital’s official charity, and now hangs in the HIV ward. Her work has been sold to collectors in the USA, Mexico and throughout Europe. She was recently featured in the Evening Standard magazine promoting her show 'Strange Brew.’
