Rebecca Last’s Rice Lake body of work addresses a decade of growth, maturity and vision . In 2003 Edward Day Gallery showed the first of these paintings in this evolving series - work that continues to explore ways of connecting the viewer with the experience of the environment of the lake and beyond. There is inspiration, technique and vigor that speaks to all.
Mary Sue Rankin, Owner/Director, Edward Day Gallery, Toronto
"Her burgeoning evolution over the years has reflected a steadfast commitment to the tumultuous transformations, climatic conditions of a Canadian lake weather system and beyond. An ongoing primary source of inspiration for the artist has been the view from her studio overlooking the chronic climate commotion of Rice Lake, a slender twenty - three mile long body of water along the Trent Severn Waterway. For over a decade, her palette has captured the sometimes calm, often disruptive, atmospheric systems that sweeps across the face of the rural region. "
