Sustainability and Seasonality Provide Inspiration for The Chefs’ Forum Artist in Residence, Rebecca Searle
The Chefs’ Forum now has its own Artist in Residence!
While our members create works of art on a plate, Rebecca Searle creates works of art on canvas inspired by the natural beauty of the ingredients. And instead of reinterpreting classic dishes she reinterprets the idea of a traditional still life, creating a new take on the traditional celebration of the produce of the woods and fields, and the pleasures of the table, inspired by the colours and shapes of the produce.
Although she is now based in London, Rebecca grew up on a smallholding in Suffolk and food and its provenance was a big part of her childhood.
Rebecca tries to capture the ideal of sustainability, and particularly seasonality, in her canvasses.
She said: “I am very excited to be involved as Artist in Residence at The Chefs’ Forum.
“I try to make a direct and, I hope, powerful connection with the viewer; letting them experience the colours, the richness and, particularly, the texture of our food in its natural state.”
Her paintings are available for sale or commission, and she can be contacted on 07920 031233 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
