The latest exhibition from the*kickplate*project team is remnants of light - a solo exhibition by Rebecca Cairns, analogue photographer from Toronto, Canada and currently based in London.

In her photography, Rebecca uses self-portraiture to create conceptual and introspective work. Her images of nature, both as a subject and a setting, capture brief and often surreal moments. Rebecca began taking photographs with a digital camera, but was drawn to film photography because of the sometimes unpredictable nature of the process, where slight changes can lead to unexpected results adding further layers to her work.

remnants of light is the fourth in a series of 9 exhibitions that will be organised in 2018 in 76m², Pontypool by the*kickplate*project, with the support from the Arts Council of Wales, Torfaen Council's Arts Development and Pontypool Community Council. 

The exhibition runs Wednesday 16th May (launch 2-5pm) – Thursday 7th June
The gallery opening times are Tuesday – Thursday 10.30 – 17.30 and Wednesday, Friday, Saturday 11:00 – 18:00

Mae olion goleuni yn arddangosfa solo gan Rebecca Cairns, ffotograffydd anolog o Toronto, Canada, sy’n seiliedig yn Llundain ar hyn o bryd.

Yn ei ffotograffiaeth mae Rebecca yn defnyddio hunan-bortreadu i greu gwaith cysyniadol a mewnweledol. Mae ei delweddau o natur, fel pwnc a hefyd fel gosodiad, yn costrelu ennydau byr ac aml swreal. Dechreuodd Rebecca dynnu ffotograffau gyda chamera digidol, ond cafodd ei denu i ffotograffiaeth ffilm oherwydd natur y broses a all fod yn anodd ei darogan, lle gall newidiadau bach arwain at ganlyniadau annisgwyl yn ychwanegu haenau pellach i’w gwaith.
