Owned Once More
Rebecca’s exhibition, Owned Once More, consists of a series of miniature oil paintings of unused abandoned sheds that she had a connection with nostalgically. They are all framed and finished with a top coat of resin for preservation. Rebecca hopes that the public will have their own reminiscences or memories regarding sheds, and that conversations and stories will flow.
