This week on Art Uncovered: Bushwick-based painter Rebecca Litt. Rebecca’s paintings filter bits of autobiography and vignettes from everyday life into surreal scenes set on Brooklyn rooftops, in swimming pools and around vacant lots. Among these scenes Rebecca paints male and female characters who seem to externalize their inner frustrations and anxieties, sometimes hiding among large nests of bright orange construction netting or a wind blown masses of bubble wrap. Rebecca describes her work as “fictionalized autobiography” and I recently sat down with her in her studio in Bushwick.
