Rebeca Bashly

Rebeca Bashly

Usually very bold, Rebeca Bashly is quiet in “Fruit of Time.” Tiny and delicate, a tree-like form becomes human, questing for something greater. Does she reach for knowledge? Transformation? Growth? Perhaps this ambition incorporates all of these things, uniquely personified. Although the theme of man integrating with nature is common, this clear and crisp depiction balances what is known (the downward reaching hand lightly holding one golden pear) with the mysterious unknown (the reaching hand that can’t quite grasp the other golden pear). Most cultures can fit this iconography within a traditional context, but this depiction is independent of specifics. It simply represents them all.

Rebeca’s use of scale gives an intimacy to the piece because it is tiny and easy to miss in a show of large and dramatic competitors. If the work were large, the monumentality would destroy the discovery. The root into the ground adds strength to the organic message, versus if the form were floating. Jewel-like in its preciousness, this work is a reminder of the best in origin and direction.
