becky comber

Using photography, collage, and re-photography, Comber’s images combine representations of figures, objects and moments within illusory space and real space bringing the real and the imagined into a shared frame and a common realm. Her work frequently deals with the nature of photographs as both tactile and visual objects – original photographs are often the subjects of the final photographs, as they are cut out, altered and ultimately re-photographed into the final compositions.

Her work has been exhibited internationally, and is held in the permanent collections of both corporate and provincial institutions. Becky's work has been published editorially and through the Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward competition as well as featured in the compilation Carte Blanch which was the first of its kind to highlight excellence in Canadian photography. Becky's latest body of work Broken Horizons was selected as a feature exhibition in the 2014 CONTACT photography festival in Toronto. She is currently working in her Guelph studio exploring new approaches to large scale collage towards a busy exhibition schedule in 2017.

She not only creates series of photo-based art but takes on projects in drawing and collage and has maintains a steady business in commissioned illustrative work.
