Can You Hear Me?


2004
Acrylic on canvas
These paintings represent the 'Men in the Boat', a game used to test children's hearing. Children are conditioned to jump a peg man into a boat every time they hear a tone. The 'men' (themselves with no ears) are old and worn and have expressive faces, children often lifting the men to their ears in the belief that they are the source of the sound.

Rebecca works as a Community Paediatrician in Islington and completed a part time BA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in June 2002.

Her work is primarily concerned with the clinical gaze. Using her medical training and work as a paediatrician she explores and criticises the current state of the clinical gaze in medicine. She sees the gaze in medicine as simultaneously penetrative, able to explore the interior landscape of the body, and aloof, trying to distance itself from direct contact. In medicine the gaze is central to practice but neither recognised or debated.
