Rebecca Mayo is an accomplished artist and printmaker. She is interested in the performative aspects of printmaking, its repetition and reiterations – processes she likens to walking’s meditative potential. Recently her work has centred around ecology, finding poetic and unexpected ways to evoke the climate concerns we live beneath.

‘Temporal tie’ is a bold work. In it, a woman in Victorian garb holds a ruby red orb shooting lodes. Temporal veins, which are veins related to the head’s temple, as well as time-travel comes to mind. Like new neural pathways, Mayo forms unexpected connections.

Mayo currently lectures in the Print Media and Drawing Workshop at the School of Art & Design, Australian National University. She has exhibited at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Heide Museum of Modern Art, the University of New South Wales and RMIT, and is held in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia and Artbank. In 2019 she was awarded First Prize in Castlemaine Art Museum’s inaugural Experimental Print Prize.
