About Rebekah West
Rebekah West is an American interdisciplinary artist-in-residence in the heart of France’s perfume country. Her photography and short films have been selected for exhibition and screening worldwide, including six exhibits in France featuring video and diptychs of women and flowers. With access to an octagonal 16th century chapel, she discovered and realized its acoustic properties by composing, performing, and recording original sacred music (CD Les Audides) and in 2016 garnering a 15-city American Echoes Tour through historical and ultra-modern spaces across the American south. She shot a tango film in her village, which is in post-production. MacArthur “genius” Liz Lerman’s upcoming book on creative critique includes one of Rebekah’s essays (Wesleyan Press, 2018). As a story finder for the Hallmark Channel’s New Morning Show, Rebekah featured artists living with meaning. She writes on dance for Presenting Denver and enjoys writing about art, creativity and expression. Wanting to come away from France changed, she has opened to aesthetic ravaging via color, sound, emotion, scent, and space awareness. Besides detecting the chapel “treasure”, she found an antique iron bed in the nearby forest; for her resulting interactive art journal, West is seeking a unique publisher, one that aligns with elevating young women artists within the greater human family.
