Rebecca Haseltine approaches visual art from a somatic perspective – exploring body-based and sensory-based mark-making. Her art investigates questions about being in a body, and recent themes include fluids of the body, the brain, and embryology. She created a series of collaborative installations based on California estuaries, and recent bodies of work continue the inquiry into the relationship between inner and outer ecology. Her studio process includes an ongoing study of the nature of water and the resulting patterns it creates.
Over the past 25 years she has worked in several media, beginning with dance, then large-scale movement-based drawings, to prints, to ‘pourings’, then to kinetic sculpture, photography, and now weaving ‘pouring’ and drawing together.
Rebecca has shown her work extensively and has worked collaboratively with dancers, composers, and filmmakers.
