Rebecca Tutthill is a photographic artist from the UK. Her overall practice involves a focus on the use of minimal and abstract aesthetics to create a photographic approach to contemporary art. She frequently experiments with the role of light and its absence to create visually and emotionally impactful pieces. Using both representational and non-representational depictions, her work incorporates aesthetics from several disciplines, however, approached from a photographic perspective.
Monochromatic palettes are consistent throughout Tutthill’s work since subtleties in gradation and tonality are deeply communicative through their connotations. As photographs are created using light, it holds an inherent role within a photographic practice. The investigation of light and shadows occurs frequently throughout her pieces as she continues to experiment with the causality of their interaction.
Her current work involves an ongoing investigation into the visual translation of the experiences of living with depersonalisation. The work evokes feelings of disconnection from a space, connoting themes of disorientation, detachment and explores a sense of passivity to the world. Using distortion and imperfection it depicts life as experienced by a person feeling as if they are merely observing, rather than playing an active role.
