Rebecca Poarch is a 22-year-old artist from East Williston, New York. She graduated from the Pennsylvania State University after pursing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art with her concentration in Painting & Drawing. She is a current studio artist at The Art Guild located at Elderfields Preserve, a historic landmark and nature preserve, in Flower Hill, New York.
Describing herself as a figurative painter, Rebecca's work contemplates poetic connections between forms, while deeply connecting to both internal and external experiences across infinite universal space.
Through painting an engagement between human identity to natural phenomena, she aims to create a personal mythology and diaristic narrative with much boundary dissolution between the physical and metaphysical, or the earthly and ethereal. Rebecca's work examines an intimate relationship between the self and femininity, thus healing and accepting both bodily and heavenly changes on her quest for true inner harmony. Rebecca hopes to reflect oneness, beauty, and empowerment in her work, particularly emphasizing the elasticity and resilience of the female form.
