Rebecca Harper's first UK solo show (at Anima Mundi, March 2019) received the following review in Financial Times: Harper's large seaside landscape reverie with groups of figures separate yet in elusive relationship to each other, was a standout at the 2018 Bloomberg New Contemporaries. This is a welcome first solo show for a young promising painter. Harper orchestrates accomplished, elaborate, decorative compositions (...) underpinned by fine drawing which gives both intimacy and rigour. Peter Doig is a presiding influence, but Harper's limpid manner is distinctive."
