The nature of Rebecca Parkin’s work is multi-layered incorporating drawing, installation and text with a baroque sense of vision and story-telling. She concocts fantasies which hover between multiple zones, bodies and genres where divergent strands of art history and popular culture are stewed together forming new contaminated fictions. Horror film posters, comic books, heavy metal aesthetics, cosplay, science fiction, fantasy illustration and amateur fan art are among her influences.
Rebecca Parkin gained the Basil Alkazzi Scholarship at The Royal College of Art and graduated in 2009. She currently practices from her studio in north London
