Artist Statement

          Rebecca Nabarrete is a Los Angeles based artist, with a Bachelors from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in painting and video. Her art work is collage like imagery painted on found paper which is enlarged and informs the narrative. Often occupying the composition is an unnatural juxtaposition, inviting the viewer to psychologize it. Paintings of wild animals and domestic objects on banal paper (often with utilitarian origin) creates a narrative that many times reminds humanity  of the inescapable commonality we often share with animals and their instinctual behavior. The humanization of animals invites the viewer to self-reflect, define and perhaps redefine how self aware they are.
       The act of taking graffiti from it’s context of vandalism and giving it a stable home is re-creating the American experience of ingesting all the media of mass shootings, racism, corruption and consciously putting kindness back into the world by stripping graffiti of it’s hostility and giving it a home. "In this way I am adopting my new America and giving back a non abusive experience."
