Have you ever stopped in the middle of a Costco store and just marveled at what you saw? The chaos, the flow of bustling people, the architecture that could be mistaken for no other building. Local artist Rebecca Payne has stopped and watched these commercial shopping spaces and patterns many times over the past few years. Their new body of work explores seeing a space for what it’s actually being used for, how the use of space can change, and the emotional effect spaces can have on oneself and others.

Rebecca Payne is a queer multimedia artist from rural Ontario. They are a graduate of the University of Guelph with an Honours BA in Studio Art, with specializations in painting, printmaking and drawing. They have a fascination with liminal spaces and parting with fleeting moments as they pass. Their current work explores themes of loneliness, awkwardness, and the mutual exchange between the artist and the environment.
