Enlightenment – Exhibition by Rebecca Cassar

5 January, 2023 - 16 February, 2023

‘Enlightenment’ is a visual art exhibition by Rebecca Cassar being held at Malta Society of Arts, Palazzo de La Salle between the 5th and 26th January 2023.

The exhibition centers around the use of colour, texture and 23.5 karat gold leaf, as a form of expressing the artist’s personal journey over the past year and a half. Despite the turmoil and trepidation, through the darkness, colour, light and gold have shone through – the abstraction of the unimportant to focus on the good and real moments of existence.

The gold leaf is symbolic of the instances of beauty, growth and timelessness which were intertwined within these difficult moments in the artist’s life. Moreover, the dual metaphoric symbolism of the gold and gilding techniques used in creating these abstract pieces, reflects the relevance that the traditional and timeless technique of gilding has in the realm of art. Through her paintings, Rebecca finds a form of escapism from the bitter realities of this period in her life while also celebrating the triumphs experienced in the face of adversity.

Artist Biography

Rebecca is a 28-year-old Maltese artist. From a young age, she has always had a burning passion for the arts, and has also been most content with a paintbrush in her hand (and the occasional blob of paint in her hair).

After pursuing a career as a lawyer, Rebecca finally had the courage to chase her dream. She has embarked on a journey of self-discovery which has led her back to her roots – the love of the arts and all that is creative.

She is happily dedicating a significant amount of time and effort in building her portfolio of art works. Her abstract pieces fully exhibit her love for colour, with specific techniques employed further reflecting her journey of self-exploration.
