Rebecca McGee Tuck is a mixed media sculptor and a collector of lost objects. Her work is inspired by the bits and fragments of land and sea debris that she gathers. Every object she picks up has energy like an emotional artifact, containing a relation to an action, a person or an intriguing unknown. The depth and textures that are built up through sculptural experiments, become a layered narrative. On the surface, the objects within may only be unwanted debris, but the sculptural outcome that is composed is a multilayered storyline of what was left behind. With her most recent work Tuck intends to raise awareness of the abuse that the oceans face by transforming pieces of marine debris into works of art and symbols of hope, calling attention to the consequences of polluting our oceans and encouraging a new commitment to action.
