Rebecca Warren is a sculptor who works in clay, bronze, and steel. She also makes collages and wall mounted vitrines using assemblages of objects she has collected. Always evident in Warren's work is the negotiation between thought and process. Ideas and influences are filtered, distorted and often discarded as they find three-dimensional form. Her sculptures can be tender and droll, yet also aggressive in their depiction of the female form. Yet while she often manages to both invoke and skewer the work of familiar male artists such as Willem de Kooning, Alberto Giacometti and cartoonist R. Crumb, individually and collectively Warren's works form an entirely modern, complex and distinctive visual language. She has had solo shows at museums and galleries across Europe and the United States including Le Consortium, Dijon; Tate St Ives; Dallas Museum of Art; Kunstverein Munich; The Art Institute of Chicago; and the Serpentine Gallery, London. She was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2006 and the Vincent Award in 2008 and is represented in collections internationally.
