becky comber

Using photography, collage, and re-photography, Comber’s images combine representations of environments, objects and figures 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. These hand cut interventions distort the relationship between printed images and representation of the environment to explore the formal chaos of wild things.

She is currently working in her Grey County studio exploring new approaches to large scale collage

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.

She not only creates series of photo-based art but takes on projects in drawing and collage and is available for commissioned illustrative work.
