Becky Tucker

I’m a visual artist based in Glasgow. I studied Fine Art at the Edinburgh College of Art, during that time my work was primarily painting but now I work mainly in the field of sculpture. I work in a range of materials but at the moment my focus is working with ceramic. My practice explores duality and storytelling through imagined histories and futures. I’m interested in how artefacts can be a signifier of a time or place that may or may not be familiar to the viewer. Themes of opposition and doubles are a recurring language in my work. I repeatedly create objects that reference the human or animal body, often blurring the line between animate sentient character and inanimate object. I take influences from many diverse sources including film, gothic architecture, auction catalogues and medieval art.
