Le Cocon invites the viewer to ruminate on the theory that the cocoon phase — incubation, seeming stagnation, messy metamorphism, magic dark — isn't a phase of life; it is the entirety and essence of [physical form] life. The unfolding of wings, the butterfly, is seen only for scant seconds — and always slant — while we are embodied.
Rooted in the stillness of Maison de Beaumont, each canvas is its own universe, built and broken, in the complicated language of layering, scratching, and carving. MacKay employs an array of mediums and handcrafted tools, skillfully capturing the essence of agitation, peace, noise, silence, despair, hope, destruction, and healing...all the echoes of life's ceaseless dance with paradox and offering a portal.
Each canvas universe beckons viewers to cross the threshold of their own cocoon. To explore the corridors of their own silent sanctuary where solitude transforms into torrents of creativity and dialogue with creation itself.
Rebekah MacKay is joining forces with Georgia and MCMC in an exciting collaboration that brings together the artistic realms of 'Le Cocon' and the dynamic fashion collection 'Lone Rider.' Together, they are set to transform a pop-up store and gallery space into a vibrant showcase of creativity and style.
This unique collaboration invites visitors to experience the juxtaposition of introspection and bold fashion, creating a dynamic and immersive environment where the beauty of life's solo moments merges with a transformative power.
