About

My name’s Rebecca Kemp and I work with both fabric and fibre. My current work consists of exploring the concepts of society, power and control through the physical contradiction of the soft and comforting qualities of felt.


I choose to use fabric and wool as a physical representation of humanity. Using the soft and comfortable tributes of these materials I create pieces which initially appeal to our ‘inner child’. Through distorting the figures and bringing out a harsher character, I then turn my work into an emotional contradiction, whilst focusing on the themes of power and control within society.

A brutal mutilation of these materials opens up new questions and concerns about the reality of humanity.

They are the truth,
warning you away from their cute and cosy exterior.

    Do you have a Hide ‘n’ Seek for sale?

    If so, how much is it?

    If you have sold out, after your Teddington show, could you make me another?

    What sort of timescale would we be working to?

    Many thanks for you speedy response to my e-mail to you earlier today.
