Melbourne artist Rebecca Monaghan works across sculpture, sound, animation and interactive video. Since completing her Masters she has largely focused her practice on the interpretation of form, colour and sound.
Her interest in object hermeneutics (the term she uses to describe her process) was first explored when experimenting with new ways of composing and performing experimental sound pieces for the exhibition Percy Grainger: In the Company of Strangers. These ideas were later refocused through the prism of Kandinsky’s colour theory and her own (developing) relative theory of colour, form and sound. This work resulted in Walking in Sound Fields and Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release.
Monaghan completed a Master of Contemporary Art at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2015.
She holds a bachelor’s degree majoring in philosophy and psychology and postgraduate qualifications in computer science.
