BIO

Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf (b.1982 Australia) is a London based artist who grew up between Germany and the UK. Her work predominantly focuses on painting and portraiture, exploring themes surrounding female identity and mortality. She studied Fine Art at The Surrey Institute of Art & Design (200-04) and was awarded the Chelsea Arts Club Trust Award Grant to complete her MFA at Wimbledon College of Arts (2013-15). Rebecca was featured as one of the winners of the BBC art program ‘show me the monet’ in 2011 and recently went on to become a Vice President to the Society of Women Artists where she is on the judging panel for their annual open exhibition at the Mall Galleries as well as co-curating the exhibition. The recipient of several awards, she has exhibited widely in solo, curated and juried group shows at venues such as the Mall Galleries, the V&A and the RCA. Her most recent exhibitions include GOOD NATURE at the Candida Stevens Gallery, for which she painted the first authorised portrait of MP and Green Party Leader Caroline Lucas, as well as her largest and most significant solo show to date in the heart of London’s Fitzrovia. Her work can be found in both public and private collections.
