Fascinated by the inchoate nature of form and capturing a duality of both reality and abstraction, Becky Allen’s imagery is created with intense mark-making by either pen, pencil or needle. She takes her inspiration from female figures throughout history, with her central focus on the literature surrounding the heroine Penelope from Greek Mythology. These women and their association with fabric inspire both her intricate process and large scale drawings.
Becky Allen has exhibited her work across London including Cob Gallery. Most recently she displayed a 14ft long drawing with Girls Only in Bombay, a work made en route through Rajasthan. She lives and works in London.
