Rebecca Kinkead is known for her figurative work which is focused on children, often depicting a joyful moment of childhood abstracted just enough to make the image appear to be forming or disappearing before the viewer.  Some of Kinkead’s recent work has the viewer looking face to face with a bear, owl, deer, or wolf taking the viewer to that moment you come across an animal in the wild and lock eyes.  Kinkead explains “I think that moment when an animal is seeing you, witnessing you and you’re just in it’s presence, there is something exhilarating about that. It takes my breath away.”
